"Keep me, O keep me..."

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.
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.
O may my soul on Thee repose, and with sweet sleep mine eyelids close,
Sleep that may me more vigorous make to serve my God when I awake.
When 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.
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise God above, ye heavenly host; praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
