The Day is passed and gone, the evening shades appear. O may we all remember well, the day that death draws near. We lay our garments by, upon our beds to rest. So death shall soon disrobe us all, of what we have possessed. Lord keep us safe this night, secure from all our fears. May angels guard us while we sleep till morning light appear.
