A Night Prayer by John Keble

Here are some words from the hymn “Sun of My Soul, Thou Savior Dear” written by John Keble which make a beautiful night prayer.

Sun of my soul, thou Savior Dear,

It is not night if thou be near;

O may no earth-born cloud arise

To hide thee from thy servant’s eyes.

 

When the soft dews of kindly sleep

My wearied eyelids gently steep,

Be my last thought, how sweet to rest

Forever on my Savior’s breast.
