The Day Is Past and Over
Lyrics and .mp3 Download
1. The day is past and over, all thanks, O Lord, to thee! We pray thee that offenseless the hours of dark may be. O Jesus, keep us in thy sight, and guard us through the coming night.
2. The joys of day are over; we lift our hearts to thee, and call on thee that sinless the hours of dark may be. O Jesus, make their darkness light, and guard us through the coming night.
3. The toils of day are over; we raise our hymn to thee, and ask that free from peril the hours of dark may be. O Jesus, keep us in thy sight, and guard us through the coming night.
4. Be thou our souls' preserver, O God, for thou dost know how many are the perils through which we have to go. Lord Jesus Christ, O hear our call, and guard and save us from them all.
