The day is past and gone

1. The day is past and gone;
The evening shades appear:
O may we all remember well
The night of death draws near.

2. We lay our garments by,
Upon our beds to rest;
So death shall soon disrobe us all
Of what is here possest.

3. Lord, keep us safe this night,
Secure from all our fears;
May angels guard us while we sleep,
Till morning light appears.

4. And when we early rise,
And view th' unwearied sun,
May we press on to reach the prize,
And after glory run.

5. And when our days are past,
And we from time remove,
O may we in thy bosom rest,
The bosom of thy love.
