  Before the Ending of the Day

St. Ambrose, 340-397; translated by John Mason Neale, 1852

Before the ending of the day,
Creator of the world, we pray
That with thy wonted favour, thou
Wouldst be our Guard and Keeper now.

2. From all ill dreams defend our sight,
From fears and terrors of the night;
Withhold from us our ghostly foe,
That spot of sin we may not know.

3. O Father, that we ask be done,
Through Jesus Christ, thine only Son;
Who, with the Holy Ghost and thee,
Doth live and reign eternally.
