To you before the close of day – Prayer

by Dinty (Comox, BC, Canada)

To you before the close of day, Creator of all things, we pray

that, in your saving constancy, our guard and keeper you would be.
Save us from troubled, restless sleep;
from all ill dreams your 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,
your praise and glory we shall sing.
