488 (S.M.) John Leland

The day is past and gone

The ev'ning shades appear;

Oh, may we all remember well

The night of death draws near.

We lay our garments by,

And on our beds we rest;

So death will soon disrobe us all

Of what we here possess.

Lord, keep us safe this night,

Secure from all our fears;

May angels guard us while we sleep,

'Til morning light appears.

And when we early rise,

And view th'unwearied sun,

May we press on to reach the prize,

And after glory run.

And when our days are past,

And we from time remove,

Oh, may we in Thy bosom rest,

The bosom of Thy love.
