Now the light has gone away;
Father, listen while I pray,
Asking Thee to watch and keep
And to send me quiet sleep.
Jesus, Saviour, wash away
All that has been wrong today;
Help me ev'ry day to be
Good and gentle, more like Thee.
Let my near and dear ones be
Always near and dear to Thee;
Oh, bring me and all I love
To Thy happy home above.
From Kearney Daily Hub, June 1943
