Many congregations unknowingly sing a stanza each Sunday by Bishop Thomas Ken (1637-1710). What numerous congregations commonly call “The Doxology” (“Praise God from whom all blessings flow...”) is actually the final stanza of Thomas Ken’s hymn.

ALL praise to Thee, my God, this night
For all the blessings of the light;
Keep me, O, keep me, King of kings,
Beneath Thine own almighty wings.

Forgive me, Lord, through Thy dear Son,
The ill that I this day have done;
May peace with God and neighbor be,
Before I sleep restored to me.

Teach me to live, that I may dread
The grave as little as my bed;
Teach me to die, that so I may
Rise glorious at the judgement day.

O, may my soul on Thee repose,
And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close;
Sleep, that shall me more vigorous make
To serve my God when I awake.

If in the night I sleepless lie,
My soul with heavenly thoughts supply;
Let no ill dreams disturb my rest,
No powers of darkness me molest.

O when shall I, in endless day,
For ever chase dark sleep away,
And hymns divine with angels sing,
All praise to thee, eternal King.

Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

~ Thomas Ken, 1637-1710
