VI. Let Them Give Thanks Whom The Lord Has Redeemed
& Glory To Thee My God This Night
Let them give thanks whom the Lord has redeemed
And delivered from the hands of the enemy.
They went astray in the wilderness out of the way;
Hungry and thirsty; their soul fainted in them.
He led them forth by the right way
That they might go to the city where they dwelt.
O that men would therefore praise the Lord for his goodness;
And declare the wonders that he doeth for the children of men!
Glory to thee, my God, this night
For all the blessings of the light;
Keep me, O keep me, King of kings,
Beneath thy own almighty wings.
Forgive me, Lord, for thy dear Son,
The ill that I this day have done,
That with the world, myself and thee,
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.
Teach me to live, that I may dread
The grave as little as my bed;
Teach me to die, that so I may
Rose glorious at the aweful day.
O may my soul on thee repose,
And with sweet sleep my eyelids close,
Sleep that may me more vigorous make
To serve my God when I awake.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow,
Praise him all creatures here below,
Praise him above, ye heavenly host,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
