|1||The darkness now is over,
And all the world is bright;
Praise be to Christ, Who keepeth
His people safe at night!
|2||We cannot tell what gladness
May be our lot today,
What sorrow or temptation
May meet us on our way.
|3||But this we know most surely,
That through all good or ill,
God’s grace can always help us
To do His holy will.
|4||Then, Jesu, let the Angels,
Who watched us through the night,
Be all day long beside us,
To guide our steps aright;
|5||And help us to remember,
In thought, and deed, and word,
That we are heirs of heaven,
And children of the Lord.
|6||Then, when the evening cometh,
We’ll kneel again to pray,
And thank Thee for the blessings
Bestowed throughout the day. Amen.
|Job||28:3||He setteth an end to darkness, and searcheth out all perfection: the stones of darkness, and the shadow of death.
