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

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

Comfort every sufferer, Watching late in pain; Those who plan some evil , From their sins restrain.

Through the long night-watches, May Thine angels spread, Their white wings above me, Watching 'round my bed.
When the morning wakens, Then may I arise, Pure and fresh and sinless, In Thy holy eyes.

Marvelous pictures. And thanks for posting some of Sabine Baring-Gould's hymn, "Now the Day Is Over." (Today is the 176th anniversary of his birth.) If you enjoy reading about hymns and their authors, I invite you to check out my daily blog on the subject, Wordwise Hymns.
