The Lord Almighty grant us a quiet night and a perfect end. Amen
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: whom resist, steadfast in the faith. 1 Peter 5:8,9
But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us. Thanks be to God.
Our help is in the name of the Lord. Who has made heaven and earth.
I confess to God Almighty, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, that I have sinned in thought, word and deed, through my own grevious fault. Wherefore I pray God to have mercy upon me.
Almighty God, have mercy upon me, forgive me all my sins and deliver me from all evil, confirm and strengthen me in all goodness and bring me to life everlasting; though Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen
WHOSO dwelleth under the defence of the most High: shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say unto the Lord, Thou art my hope, and my strong hold: my God, in him will I trust.
For he shall deliver thee from the snare of the hunter: and from the noisome pestilence.
He shall defend thee under his wings, and thou shalt be safe under his feathers: his faithfulness and truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Thou shalt not be afraid for any terror by night: nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
For the pestilence that walketh in darkness: nor for the sickness that destroyeth in the noon-day.
A thousand shall fall beside thee, and ten thousand at thy right hand: but it shall not come nigh thee.
Yea, with thine eyes shalt thou behold: and see the reward of the ungodly.
For thou, Lord, art my hope: thou hast set thine house of defence very high.
There shall no evil happen unto thee: neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
For he shall give his angels charge over thee: to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee in their hands: that thou hurt not thy foot against a stone.
Thou shalt go upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou tread under thy feet.
Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him up, because he hath known my Name.
He shall call upon me, and I will hear him: yea, I am with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and bring him to honour. With long life will I satisfy him: and shew him my salvation.
Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the eternal covenant, make your perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight; through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. Thanks be to God.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our tresspasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen
Blessed art thou, Lord God of our fathers, to be praised and glorified for ever.
I bless the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, I praise him and magnify him for ever.
Blessed art thou, O Lord in the firmament of heaven, to be praised and glorified above all for ever.
The almighty and most merciful Lord guard and give his blessing. Amen
Lighten the darkness, I beseech thee, O Lord; and by thy great mercy defend us all from all perils and dangers of this night; for the love of thy only Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.
I will lay down in peace and take my rest, for it is thou, Lord, only that makest me dwell in safety.
Abide with me, O Lord, for it is towards evening and the day is far spent.
As the watchmen look for the morning, so do I look for thee O Christ.
