Language updated and some punctuation altered from The Book of Worship for Church and Home (1965), of The Methodist Church:

O Lord Jesus Christ, you are the very bright son of the world, ever rising, never going down.  Shine, we beseech you, upon our spirit, that the night of sin and error being drive away by your inward light, we may walk without stumbling, as in the day.  Grant this, O Lord, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Ghost for evermore.  Amen.

From Chalice Worship (1997), of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ):

O Lord our God, thank you for bringing this day to a close;

Thank you for giving us rest in body and soul.

Your hand has been over us and has guarded and preserved us.

Forgive our lack of faith and any wrong that we have done today, and help us to forgive all who who have wronged us.

Let us sleep in pace under your protection, and keep us from all the temptations of darkness.

Into your hands we commend our loved ones and all who dwell in this place;

We commend to you all that we are–body and soul.

O God, your holy name be praised.  Amen.
