Goodnight, Sweet Jesus lyrics

Goodnight, sweet jesus,
Goodnight, goodnight . . .

Goodnight, sweet jesus,
Guard us in sleep,
Our souls and bodies,
In thy love keep . . .

Waking or sleeping,
Keep us in sight,
Dear gentle saviour,
Goodnight, goodnight . . .

Goodnight, dear jesus,
Goodnight, goodnight . . .

Goodnight sweet jesus,
Pray that each day,
Of our lives mortal,
Thus pass away. . .

Thy love oer watching,
Guiding our right,
Dear gentle saviour,
Goodnight, goodnight . . .

Goodnight dear jesus,
Goodnight, goodnight . . .
