Wind down the ending of your family’s day by praying this ancient hymn, appointed for use in the office of Compline.
The vididly painted spreads will capture the attention of even the youngest family member as the daylight fades.
- Before the ending of the day,
Creator of the world, we pray!
Thy grace and peace to us allow
And be our guard and keeper now.
- From all the terrors of the night,
From evil dreams defend our sight;
Drive far away our wicked foe
That stain of sin we may not know.
- O Father, this we ask be done
Through Jesus Christ, Thine only Son,
Who with the Holy Ghost and Thee
Both lives and reigns eternally.
