Hymn 280
Now, God, be with us, for the night is closing

1 Now, God, be with us, for the night is closing; the light and darkness are of His disposing, and 'neath His shadow here to rest we yield us, for He will shield us. 2 Let evil thoughts and spirits flee before us; till morning's dawning, watch, Protector, o'er us; in soul and body thou from harm defend us; thine angels send us. 3 Let holy thoughts be ours when sleep o'ertakes us; our earliest thoughts be Thine when morning wakes us, All day serve thee, and in all that we are doing thy praise pursuing. 4 We have no refuge; none on earth to aid us save thee, O Father, who thine own hast made us; but thy dear presence will not leave them lonely who seek thee only. 5 Father thy holy name be praised, thy kingdom given, thy will be done on earth as 'tis in heaven; keep us in life, forgive our sins, deliver us now and ever.
