SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

“The Day Is Past and Over”
Translated by John M. Neale, 1853
Text from “The Handbook to the Lutheran Hymnal”
Concordia Publishing House, St. Louis, 1942, p. 395

1. The day is past and over;
All thanks, O Lord, to Thee!
I pray Thee now that sinless
The hours of dark may be.
O Jesus, keep me in Thy sight
And save me through the coming night.

2. The joys of day are over;
I lift my heart to Thee
And ask Thee that offenseless
The hours of dark may be.
O Jesus, keep me in Thy sight
And guard me through the coming night.

3. The toils of day are over:
I raise the hymn to Thee
And ask that free from peril
The hours of dark may be.
O Jesus, make their darkness light
And guard me through the coming night.

4. Lord, that in death I sleep not,
And lest my Foe should say
“I have prevailed against him,”
Lighten mine eyes, I pray.
O Jesus, keep me in Thy sight
And guard me through the coming night.

5. Be Thou my Soul’s Preserver,
O God, for Thou dost know
How many are the perils
Through which I have to go.
Lover of men, oh, hear my call
And guard and save me from them all.
