Our Guard By Night.
432

Lord of the world, who hast preserved

Us safely through this day,

Now guard us in the silent night,

And in all time, we pray!

Be present, in Thy peace, to those

Who as Thy suppliants wait;

Blot out the record of our sin;

Our gloom illuminate!

Let not, amid our hours of sleep,

Life’s enemy steal in;

Let not a vision of the night

Have power to whisper sin.

Guard every avenue from guile,

When slumber seals our eyes;

And guiltless as we laid us down,

So guiltless let us rise.
