Keep watch, dear Lord

There was a time in my life when I said compline every night.  
This picture reminds me of my favorite prayer from that service:

"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."
