God That Madest Earth And Heaven (Ar Hyd Y Nos, Organ)

Lyrics

Suitable for: Lent, Evensong, General Usage

God, who made the earth and heaven,
Darkness and light:
You the day for work have given,
For rest the night.
May your angel guards defend us,
Slumber sweet your mercy send us,
Holy dreams and hopes attend us,
All through the night.

Guard us waking, guard us sleeping,
And, when we die,
May we in your mighty keeping
All peaceful lie.
When the trumpet’s call shall wake us,
Then, O Lord, do not forsake us,
But to reign in glory take us
With you on high.
