    Verse 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.

    Verse 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.

    Verse 3
    O may my soul on Thee repose,
    And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close;
    Sleep that may me more vigorous make
    To serve my God when I awake.

    Verse 4
    If in the night I sleepless lie,
    My soul with heavenly thoughts supply;
    Let no ill dreams disturb my rest,
    No powers of darkness me molest.

    Verse 5
    Praise God, from whom all blessings flow,
    Praise Him, all creatures here below;
    Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
    Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
