The Angel Keep watch this night, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or weep, and give your angels charge over those who sleep. Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous and wash away our sins that we may dwell with thee in thy glory forever; and all for your love's sake we pray. Amen.
