Glory to thee, my God, this night

1) Glory to thee, my God, this night
for all the blessings of the light.
Keep me, O keep me, King of kings,
beneath thy own almighty wings.

2) Forgive me, Lord, for thy dear Son,
the ill that I this day have done,
that with the world, myself and thee,
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.

3) O may my soul on thee repose,
and may sweet sleep my eyelids close,
sleep that may me more vigorous make
to serve my God when I awake.

4) When in the night I sleepless lie,
my soul with heavenly thoughts supply;
let no ill dream disturb my rest,
no powers of darkness me molest.

5) Praise God, from whom all blessings flow,
praise him, all creatures here below,
praise him above, ye heavenly host,
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
