The Day Departs Yet Thou Art Near

The day departs, yet Thou art near;
With Thee at hand, we have no fear.
By night Thine eyes their vigil keep,
When our faint eyes are closed in sleep.

We rest secure beneath Thy hand,
Protector of our home and land.
To guard Thy children’s peaceful rest.
Around them stand Thine angels blest.

They sweetly sleep who fear the Lord,
And walk obedient to His Word;
They wake again in joyous mood
To praise the Lord, their Father good.
