Te lucis ante terminum

To You before the end of day,
Creator of the world, I pray:
In love unfailing hear my prayer,
Enfold me in Your watchful care.

Keep all disturbing dreams away,
And hold the evil foe at bay.
Repose untroubled let me find
For soul and body, heart and mind.

Almighty Father, this accord
Through Jesus Christ, Your Son, my Lord:
Who reigns with You eternally
In Your blest Spirit’s unity. Amen.

From the Compline in the Anglican Prayer Book, 2008. Anglican Mission in America.
