  1. Now rest beneath night's shadow
    The woodland, field, and meadow;
    The world in slumber lies.
    But you, my heart, awaking
    And prayer and music making,
    Let praise to your Creator rise.
  1. Lord Jesus, since You love me,
    Now spread Your wings above me
    And shield me from alarm.
    Though Satan would devour me,
    Let angel guards sing o'er me:
    This child of God
    shall meet no harm.
  1. My loved ones, rest securely,
    For God this night will surely
    From peril guard your heads.
    Sweet slumbers may He send you
    And bid His hosts attend you
    And through the night
    watch o'er your beds.
