110R All Praise to You, My God, This Night

Tune: ALLMAECHTIGER GOTT, L.M., Johann Crueger (1598-1662)

1. All praise to you, my God, this night,
for all the bles-sings of the light!
Keep me, O keep me, King of kings,
beneath your own al-migh-ty wings.

2. When in the night I sleep-less lie,
my soul with heaven-ly thoughts sup-ply;
Let no ill dreams dis-turb my rest,
O Queen of life, my heart con-fessed.

3. Teach me to live, that I may dread
The grave as lit-tle as my bed.
That with the world, my-self and you,
sleep-ing, with peace the soul im-bue.

4. O may my soul on you re-pose,
and with sweet sleep mine eye-lids close,
asleep that may me more vi-gorous make
to serve my God when I a-wake.
