Unknown, tr. by William J. Copeland, 1848
O Christ, who art the Light and Day,|
Thou drivest night and gloom away;
O Light of light, whose Word doth show
The light of heaven to us below.
2. All-holy Lord, in humble prayer,
3. Our sleep be pure from sinful stain;
4. Asleep though wearied eyes may be,|
Still keep the heart awake to Thee;
Let Thy right hand outstretched above
Guard those who serve the Lord they love.
5. Behold, O God, our Shield, and quell
6. O Lord, remember us who bear
7. All praise to God the Father be,|
All praise, eternal Son, to Thee,
Whom with the Spirit we adore
Forever and forevermore.
