All's Well
Language: English 
The day is ended. Ere I sink to sleep 
My weary spirit seeks repose in thine: 
Father! forgive my trespasses, and keep 
This little life of mine.

With loving kindness curtain thou my bed;
And cool in rest my burning pilgrim-feet, 
Thy pardon be the pillow for my head; 
So shall my sleep be sweet.

At peace with all the world, dear Lord,and Thee, 
No fears my soul's unwavering faith can shake;
All's well, whichever side the grave for me 
The morning light may break.
