In mercy, Lord, remember me,
Thru all the hours of night;
And grant to me most graciously
The safeguard of Thy might.
With cheerful heart I close my eyes,
Since Thou wilt not remove;
O, in the morning let me rise,
Rejoicing in Thy love.
Or, if this night should prove the last,
And end my transient days,
O! take me to Thy promised rest,
Where I may sing Thy praise.
