The Suns Bright Rays Are Lost To Sight

The sun’s bright rays are lost to sight,
Around us spreads the gloom of night;
Lord Jesus Christ, Thou light divine,
Let not our souls in darkness pine.

To Thee our fervent thanks we pay,
Whose mercy crowned us all this day;
For Thou didst send Thine angels fair,
Who kept us in their tender care.

Our sins and faults do Thou efface,
Vouchsafe to us Thy boundless grace;
By Thy forgiveness truly blest,
May we in sleep find peace and rest.

Thine angel guards from heaven send,
Against the foe protection lend;
O gracious Lord, for perils sore
Shield us tonight and evermore.
