Ere I sleep, for every favor
1 Ere I sleep, for every favor,
This day showed, by my God,
I will bless my Savior.
2 O my Lord, what shall I render
To Thy name, still the same,
Gracious, good, and tender?
3 Thou hast ordered all’n.y goings , In thy way, Heard me pray Sanctified my doing.
4 Leave me not, but ever love me;
Let Thy peace, be my bliss,
Till Thou hence remove me.
5 Visit me with thy salvation; Let thy care now be near, Round my habitation.
6 Thou my Rock, my Guard, my Tower, Safely keep, While I sleep, Me with all thy power.
7 So, whene’er in death I slumber, Let me rise, With the wise, Counted in their number.
