1  All praise to Thee, my God, this night,
for all the blessings of the light.
Keep me, O keep me, King of kings,
beneath Thine own almighty wings.

2  Forgive me, Lord, for Thy dear Son,
the ill that I this day have done,
that with the world, myself, and Thee,
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.

3  O may my soul on Thee repose,
and may sweet sleep mine eyelids close;
sleep, that may me more vig'rous make,
to serve my God, when I awake.

4  Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
praise Him all creatures here below;
praise Him above, ye heav'nly host,
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
