O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
The day is past and over;
All thanks, O Lord, to Thee;
We pray Thee that offenseless
The hours of dark may be:
O Jesus, keep us in Thy sight,
And guard us through the coming night!

The joys of day are over;
We lift our hearts to Thee,
And call on Thee that sinless
The hours of dark may be:
O Jesus, make their darkness light,
And guard us through the coming night!

The toils of day are over;
We raise our hymn to Thee,
And ask that free from peril
The hours of dark may be:
O Jesus, keep us in Thy sight,
And guard us through the coming night!

Be Thou our souls' preserver,
O God, for Thou dost know
How many are the perils
Thro' which we have to go;
Lover of men, O hear our call,
And guard and save us from them all!

Amen.
