A Sweet Poem

Here is a pretty poem found in a dear little children's book. I thought y'all might enjoy it.



Now the Day is Over
By Sabine Baring-Gould

Now the day is over
Night is drawing nigh,
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky.


Now the darkness gathers,
Stars begin to peep,
Birds and beasts and flowers
Soon will be asleep.


Jesus, give the weary
Calm and sweet repose;
With thy tenderest blessing
May our eyelids close.


Grant to little children
Visions bright of thee;
Guard the sailors tossing
On the deep blue sea.


When the morning wakens,
Then may I arise,
Pure, and fresh, and sinless
In thy holy eyes.



Blessings!
