Author: J. M. Neale, 1818-66 Hymnal: The New English Hymnal #241 (1986) Hymnal Title: The New English Hymnal Lyrics: 1 Before the ending of the day,
Creator of the world, we pray
That with thy wonted favour thou
Wouldst be our guard and keeper now.
2 From all ill dreams defend our eyes,
From nightly fears and fantasies;
Tread under foot our ghostly foe,
That no pollution we may know.
3 O Father, that we ask be done,
Through Jesus Christ, thine only Son;
Who, with the Holy Ghost and thee,
Doth live and reign eternally. Amen. Topics: Times and Seasons Evening; Office Hymn Compline Languages: English Tune Title: TE LUCIS ANTE TERMINUM
