Lyrics: . <br/>1. This night, O Lord, we bless Thee <br/>For Thy protecting care, <br/>And ere we rest, address Thee <br/>In lowly, fervent prayer: <br/>From evil and temptation <br/>Defend us through the night, <br/>And round our habitation <br/>Be Thou a wall of light. <br/> <br/>2. On Thee our whole reliance <br/>From day to day we cast, <br/>To Thee with firm affiance, <br/>Would cleave from first to last; <br/>To Thee, through Jesus' merit, <br/>For needful grace we come, <br/>And trust that Thy good Spirit <br/>Will guide us safely home. <br/> <br/>3. What may be on the morrow <br/>Our foresight cannot see; <br/>But be it joy or sorrow, <br/>We know it comes from Thee. <br/>And nothing can take from us, <br/>Where'er our steps may move, <br/>The staff of Thy sure promise, <br/>The shield of Thy true love.
