1The darkness now is over,
And all the world is bright;
Praise be to Christ, Who keepeth
His people safe at night!
2We cannot tell what gladness
May be our lot today,
What sorrow or temptation
May meet us on our way.
3But this we know most surely,
That through all good or ill,
God’s grace can always help us
To do His holy will.
4Then, Jesu, let the Angels,
Who watched us through the night,
Be all day long beside us,
To guide our steps aright;
5And help us to remember,
In thought, and deed, and word,
That we are heirs of heaven,
And children of the Lord.
6Then, when the evening cometh,
We’ll kneel again to pray,
And thank Thee for the blessings
Bestowed throughout the day. Amen.
Job28:3He setteth an end to darkness, and searcheth out all perfection: the stones of darkness, and the shadow of death.
Psalm91:11For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
Psalm121:7,87 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. 8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
