The Day is Past and Gone

Melody -

John Leland, 1792

The day is past and gone;
The evening shades appear:
O may we all remember well
The night of death draws near.

2. We lay our garments by,
Upon our beds to rest;
So death shall soon disrobe us all
Of what is here possest.

3. Lord, keep us safe this night,
Secure from all our fears;
May angels guard us while we sleep,
Till morning light appears.
