Now in the fading light of day,
maker of all to you we pray,
that in your ever watchful love
you'll guide and keep us from above.
Help and defend us through the night,
danger and terror put to flight.
Never let evil have its way.
Preserve us for another day.
Father Almighty this be done,
through Jesus Christ, our Lord your Son,
whom in the Spirit we adore,
who reigns with you forever more. Amen.
