SAY THIS NIGHT PRAYER TO OUR BLESSED MOTHER
Night is falling dear Mother, long day is over;
Before thee I am kneeling once more
To thank thee for interceding for my safety this day,
To ask thee this night to keep evil away.
Many times have I fallen Mother dear;
Many graces neglected since last I knelt here;
Will thou in pity, my own Mother,
Ask Jesus to pardon the sins of thy child?
In His book they are written against the last day.
Oh! Mother Ask Jesus to wash them away.
For by the drop of His Blood for sinners that was spilt,
Is sufficient to cleanse the world of its guilt.
And if ever the dawn I should draw my last breath;
The sleep I take be the long sleep of death;
Be near me Mother for dear Jesus’ sake.
When at eternity shore my soul shall awake.
