Greek Hymns
 
The Day is Past and Over
 
Attributed to St. Anatolius. Tr. J. M. Neale (458 A. D.)
 
 
THE DAY is past and over;
  All thanks, O Lord, to Thee;
I pray Thee now that sinless
  The hours of dark may be:
O Jesu, keep me in Thy sight,        5
And guard me through the coming night.
 
The joys of day are over;
  I lift my heart to Thee,
And ask Thee that offenceless
  The hours of dark may be:        10
O Jesu, keep me in Thy sight,
And guard me through the coming night.
 
The toils of day are over:
  I raise the hymn to Thee
And ask that free from peril        15
  The hours of dark may be:
O Jesu, keep me in Thy sight,
And guard me through the coming night.
 
Be Thou my soul’s preserver,
  For Thou alone dost know        20
How many are the perils
  Through which I have to go:
O loving Jesu, hear my call,
And guard and save me from them all.
