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 Christ. 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. 
Amen
