Night Prayer

Watch, O Lord,
with those who wake,
or watch or weep tonight,
and give your angels charge
over those who sleep.

Tend your sick ones,
O Lord Jesus Christ;
rest your weary ones;
bless your dying ones;
soothe your suffering ones;
pity your afflicted ones;
shield your joyous ones;
and all for your love's sake.

Amen.



This ancient prayer, attributed to Saint Augustine of Hippo, helps us at the end of the day to turn over all the concerns of life to God, who keeps watch through the night.
