Now the day is over

Now the day is over,
Night is drawing nigh,
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky.

Now the darkness gathers,
Stars begin to peep,
Birds, and beasts, and flowers,
Soon will be asleep.

Grant to little children
Vision bright of Thee;
Guard the sailors tossing
On the deep blue sea.

 Through the long night watches
May Thine angels spread
Their white wings above me
Watching round my bed.

When the morning wakens
Then may I arise
Pure, and fresh, and sinless
In Thy holy eyes.
