365 Days of Photos--January 11, 2013/Day is Dying in the West

Day Is Dying in the West
Text: Mary A. Lathbury, 1841-1913
Music: William F. Sherwin, 1826-1888

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.

    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,
    through 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.

May you have a wonderfully blessed and peaceful Sabbath!
