Now the Day is Over

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

Father, give the weary 
Calm and sweet repose, 
With Thy tend'rest blessing 
May our eyelids close.

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