1 Before the ending of the day,
Creator of the world, we pray:
protect us by your mighty grace,
grant us your mercy and your peace:

2 Bless us in sleep, that we may find
no terrors to disturb our mind;
our cunning enemy restrain
guard us from sin and all its stain.

3 O Father, may your will be done
through Jesus Christ your only Son;
whom with the Spirit we adore,
one God, both now and evermore.
