The Day Is Done O God The Son


The day is done;
O God the Son,
Look down upon Thy little one.

O Light of light,
Keep me this night,
And shed round me Thy presence bright.

I need not fear
If Thou art near;
Thou art my Savior, kind and dear.

Thy gentle eye
Is ever nigh,
It watches me when none is by.

Thy loving ear
Is ever near
Thy little children’s prayers to hear.

So happily
And peacefully
I lay me down to rest in Thee.

To Father, Son,
And Spirit, One
In heaven and earth, all praise be done.
