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.
