26. God, that madest earth and heaven

8.4.8.4.8.8.8.4

Nutfield:

William Henry Monk, 1861

Reginald Heber, 1827;

Richard Whateley, 1855

God, that madest earth and heaven,

Darkness and light;

Who the day for toil hast given,

For rest the night,

May thine angel-guards defend us,

Slumber sweet thy mercy send us,

Holy dreams and hopes attend us,

This livelong night.

Guard us waking, guard us sleeping,

And, when we die,

May we in thy mighty keeping,

All peaceful lie:

When the last dread call shall wake us,

Do not thou, our God, forsake us,

But to reign in glory take us

With thee on high.

Amen.
