Through the Day Thy Love hath Spared Us

Melody - "Komm, o komm, du Geist", J. Christoph Bach, 1680; Seq. by Richard Jordan

Thomas Kelly, 1806

Through the day Thy love hath spared us,
Now we lay us down to rest;
Through the silent watches guard us,
Let no foe our peace molest.
Jesus, Thou our Guardian be;
Sweet it is to trust in Thee.
2. Pilgrims here on earth and strangers,
Dwelling in the midst of foes,
Us and ours preserve from dangers;
In Thine arms may we repose
And, when life's sad day is past,
Rest with Thee in heaven at last.
