Hymn 409Play music
1 Glory 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 Teach me to live,that I may dread
The grave as little as my bed;
Teach me to die, that so I may
Rise glorious at the aweful day.
4 O may my soul on Thee repose,
And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close;
Sleep that shall me more vig'rous make
To serve my God when I awake.
