Lyrics

Now the light has gone away;
Father, listen while I pray,
Asking you to watch and keep
And to send me quiet sleep.

Jesus, Savior, wash away
All that I've done wrong today.
Make me ever more like you,
Good and gentle, kind and true.

Let my near and dear ones be
Safe with you eternally.
Oh, bring me and all
I love To your happy home above.

Now my evening praise I give;
You once died that I might live.
All your precious gifts are free --
Oh, how good you are to me!

Ah, my best and kindest Friend,
You will love me to the end.
Let me love you more and more,
Always better than before.
