Hear our prayer, O heavenly Father,
ere we lay us down to sleep;
may thine angels, pure and holy,
round our bed their vigil keep.
Heavy though our sins, thy mercy
far outweighs them every one;
down before the cross we cast them,
trusting in thy help alone.
None can measure out thy patience
by the span of human thought;
none can bound the tender mercies
which thy holy Son has bought.
Pardon all our past transgressions,
give us strength for days to come;
guide and guard us with thy blessing
till thine angels bear us home.
Honor, glory, might, dominion,
to the Father and the Son,
with the everlasting Spirit,
while eternal ages run.
Harriet Parr 1856
