51. At Evening Time it Shall Be Light

1 When softly fades the sunset light,
And sombre shadows tell of night,
Above the gloom faith sees the Lord,
And dares to rest upon His word.

Refrain:
O precious promise, rich reward,
Sing hallelujah, bless the Lord!
Tho’ sombre shadows tell of night,
At evening time it shall be light.

2 Above the clouds the stars still shine,
And whisper of the Hand divine;
When on our hearts the shadows fall,
We know God’s love is over all. [Refrain]

3 God’s love has left its mighty trace
In wondrous deeds of saving grace;
That sacred love still holds the pow’r
To gild with light life’s darkest hour. [Refrain]
