Stay with us, Lord, the sun descendsAuthor: Herman G. Stuempfle
Tune: COLCHESTER (Williams)
Published in 1 hymnal
1 Stay with us, Lord, the sun descends And night is drawing near.
The shadows lengthen on the land; The stars will soon appear.
2 Stay with us, Lord, and share the weight Of sorrow, guilt, or pain
That robs our weary hearts of rest—Christ, make us whole again.
3 Stay with us, Lord, and be the light That shines when day departs,
Whose rays can pierce the starless night And reach the darkest heart.
4 Stay with us, Lord, till morning comes And, through the silent hours,
Renew in us the strength we need To serve with all our pow’rs.
