Keep watch, dear Lord

 Apropos my posting yesterday about the wonders of the service of Compline, here is one of my favorite prayers from Compline:

Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or 
weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who 
sleep. Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless 
the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the 
joyous; and all for your love's sake. Amen.
