Mor Ephrem's Boovooso (Nangalkulla Karthave) 
Lord, Thy mercy on us cast, 
Use our service, ev'ry piece, 
Grant us from Thy treasure vast 
Mercy, blessing and release, 

Let me, Lord, before Thee stand, 
Wakefully my watch I'd keep, 
Should I fall to slumber's hand, 
Guard Thou me from sinful sleep 

Waking, if to wrong I take, 
Mercifly absolve Thou me; 
Sleeping, if a sin I make, 
Pardon grant in clemency. 

By the cross of Thy disgrace 
Grant me, Lord, a restful sleep, 
Evil dreams do Thou efface, 
Wicked thoughts far from me keep. 

Through the night conduct me, Lord, 
Peaceful sleep give Thou to me 
Lest foul thoughts in me find hord, 
Phantoms lest a terror be. 

Grant Thy angel's watchful view, 
Guard my limbs without abate, 
Hateful lusts in me subdue, 
By Thy living flesh I ate. 

While I lie and sleep in calm, 
May Thy blood my keeper be. 
Let my soul dwell free from qualm 
In Thine image mad'st Thou me. 

Overshadow with Thy hand, 
Me a handicraft of Thine, 
Let me in Thy fortress stand, 
Mercy shielding round be mine. 

While my body silent lies, 
May Thy pow'r its vigil keep, 
Let my breath like incense rise, 
T'ward Thy greatness in my sleep. 

Let not evil touch my bed, 
By Thy mother's pleas for me, 
By Thy blood atoning shed, 
Satan's harm remov-ed be. 

Since Thy word abides the same, 
Guarded by Thy cross I'd be; 
Waking, I shall praise Thy Name, 
Who didst love e'en feeble me. 

Grant O Lord, a list'ning ear, 
With desire to do Thy will; 
Let Thy peace at eve be near, 
Night Thy righteousness fulfil. 

Saviour Christ, our hearts inspire, 
Thee to see effulgent bright- 
Thee whose honour shines as fire, 
Worshipped by all sons of light. 

Jesus, Saviour of the World, 
Thou who dwellest in the light, 
Praise we Thee for love unfuried- 
Mercy, now with future bright. 

Lord, our God, we give Thee praise. 
Praise a thousand thousand fold 
Tens of Thousands praises raise, 
Mercy now, till time untold. 

Thou who hearest pray'rs to Thee, 
Supplications who dost heed, 
Hear us reconcil-ed be, 
Mercy show, and grant our need.
