The United Methodist Hymnal


All Praise to Thee, My God, This Night

1.	All praise to thee, my God, this night, 
	for all the blessings of the light!
	Keep me, O keep me, King of kings, 
	beneath thine own almighty wings.

2.	Forgive me, Lord, for thy dear Son, 
	the ill that I this day have done, 
	that with the world, myself, and thee, 
	I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.

3.	Teach me to live, that I may dread 
	the grave as little as my bed. 
	Teach me to die, that so I may
	rise glorious at the judgment day.

4.	O may my soul on thee repose, 
	and with sweet sleep mine eyelids close, 
	sleep that may me more vigorous make 
	to serve my God when I awake.

5.	Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; 
	praise him, all creatures here below; 
	praise him above, ye heavenly host; 
	praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
