1O Father, ere the night draw near
To us who call, incline Thine ear;
Grant sorrow true for every sin,
That we Thy pardoning grace may win.
2O Jesu, Lamb of God, draw nigh,
Give ear unto our evening cry,
That we in peace may take our rest,
Safe sheltered by Thy Angels blest.
3And Thou, O Holy Ghost, be near,
Pour on our hearts Thy holy fear,
That if we rise from sleep again,
Our souls may pure from guilt remain.
4O praise the Father, praise the Son,
And Holy Spirit, Three in One,
Praise we with saints and Angel-host,
The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.
Zechariah14:7But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.
