NOW THE DAY IS OVER

by Larry Nickel

LYRICS

Now the day is over, night is drawing nigh;
Shadows of the evening steal across the sky.

Jesus, give the weary calm and sweet repose
With Thy tender blessing, may my eyelids close

Through the long night-watches, may Thine angels spread
Their white wings above me, watching round my bed.

When the morning wakens, then may I arise
Pure and fresh and sinless, in Thy holy eyes.

Now the day is over, night is drawing nigh;
Shadows of the evening steal across the sky.

With Thy tender blessing, may my eyelids close
