Night has fallen dear mother, the long day is over.
Before your loving image I am kneeling once more, to thank you this day for keeping me safe, and ask you this night to keep evil away.
Many times I have fallen today, mother dear, many graces neglected since I last knelt here, and God in His mercy has counted them all, numbered each grace and counted each fall.
Will thou not, in pity, my own mother mild, ask Jesus to pardon the sins of thy child.
I am going to rest, the day’s work is done, its hours and its moments have passed one by one and if ere the dawn, I should draw my last breath, and the sleep that I sleep be the long sleep of death, be near me dear mother for Jesus sweet sake, when my soul on eternal shore should wake. Amen.
