S Saviour, breathe an eve-ning bless-ing, Ere re-pose our spir - its seal;
3 Though destruction walk around us, 5 Father, to Thy holy keeping Though the arrows past us fly,
Humbly we ourselves resign. Angel-guards from Thee surround us; Saviour, Who hast slept our sleeping, We are safe, if Thou art nigh.
Make our slumbers pure as Thine. 4 Be Thou nigh, should death o'ertake us; 6 Blessed Spirit, brooding o'er us, Jesus then our refuge be,
Chase the darkness of our night, And in Paradise awake us,
Till the perfect day before us
Breaks in everlasting light. Amen.

Je-sus, Thou our Guardian be; Sweet it is to trust in

Dwelling in the midst of foes,
And, when life's short day is past,
5 Let my soul attuned be
To the heavenly harmony,

And, when we die,
All peaceful lie:
