51 ~ Day Is Dying in the West



1

Day is dying in the west;
Heaven is touching earth with rest;
Wait and worship while the night
Sets the evening lamps alight
Through all the sky.


Refrain

Holy, holy, holy,
Lord God of Hosts!
Heaven and earth are full of Thee;
Heaven and earth are praising Thee,
O Lord most high!


2

Lord of life, beneath the dome
Of the universe, Thy home,
Gather us who seek Thy face
To the fold of Thy embrace,
For Thou art nigh.


3

While the deepening shadows fall,
Heart of love enfolding all,
Thro' the glory and the grace
Of the stars that veil Thy face,
Our hearts ascend.


4

When forever from our sight
Pass the stars, the day, the night,
Lord of angels, on our eyes
Let eternal morning rise
And shadows end.
