“I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustained me.” -Psalm 3:5
- Through all the dangers of the night,
Preserv’d, O Lord! By thee;
Again we hail the cheerful light,
Again we bow the knee.
- Preserve us, Lord! throughout the day,
And guide us by thy arm;
For they are safe, and only they,
Whom thou preserv’st from harm.
- Let all our words and all our ways,
Declare that we are thine,
That so the light of truth and grace
Before the world may shine.
- Let us ne’er turn away from thee;
Dear Saviour, hold us fast,
Till with immortal eyes, we see
Thy glorious face at last.
