A Poor Brother's Hymnal
Friday, March 03, 2006
  To You Before the Close of Day
To You before the close of day,
Creator of all things we pray
That in your constant fears may cease
And rested bodies wake in peace.

Save us from troubled, restless sleep,
From all ill dreams you children keep;
So calm our minds that fears may cease
And rested bodies wake in peace.

A healthy life we ask of you,
The fire of love in us renew,
And when the dawn new light will bring
You praise and glory we shall sing.

Almighty Father, hear our cry
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord Most High,
Whom with the Spirit we adore
Forever and forevermore.

- Latin, 6th c.
