Now the Day Is Over

Verse 1

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

Verse 2

Father, give the weary,
Calm and sweet repose;
With Thy tenderest blessing
May our eyelids close.

Verse 3

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