Keep Watch Dear Lord

(Book of Common Prayer)

Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work
or watch or weep this night,
and give thine 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 all for thy love’s sake, all for thy love’s sake,
all for thy love’s sake.
