Watch, O Lord, with those who wake,
or watch, or weep tonight,
and give Your Angels
and Saints charge over those who sleep.
Tend Your sick ones, O Lord
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.
