                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. Now the light has gone away;
        Father, listen while I pray,
        Asking Thee to watch and keep
        And to send me quiet sleep.

        2. Jesus, Savior, wash away
        All that has been wrong today;
        Help me every day to be
        Good and gentle, more like Thee.

        3. Let my near and dear ones be
        Always near and dear to Thee.
        Oh, bring me and all I love
        To Thy happy home above.

        4. Now my evening praise I give;
        Thou didst die that I might live.
        All my blessings come from The;
        Oh, how good Thou art to me!

	5. Thou, my best and kindest Friend,
	Thou wilt love me to the end.
	Let me love Thee more and more,
	Always better than before.
