                              Text From:
                         THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
             (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

	1. Through the day Thy love hath spared us,
	Now we lay us down to rest;
	Through the silent watches guard us,
	Let no foe our peace molest.
	Jesus, Thou our Guardian be;
	Sweet it is to trust in Thee.

	2. Pilgrims here on earth and strangers,
	Dwelling in the midst of foes,
	Us and ours preserve from dangers;
	In Thine arms may we repose
	And, when life's sad day is past,
	Rest with Thee in heaven at last.
