598. All ’s Well
 
By Harriet McEwen Kimball
 
 
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,        5
  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;        10
All ’s well, whichever side the grave for me
  The morning light may break.
