408. Day Is Dying in the West

1 Day is dying in the west;
heav'n is touching earth with rest;
wait and worship while the night
sets her evening lamps alight
through all the sky.

Refrain:
Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of hosts!
Heav'n and earth are full of thee!
Heav'n and earth are praising thee,
O Lord Most High.

2 While the deep'ning shadows fall,
Light of light, on whom we call
through the glory and the grace
of the stars that veil thy face,
our hearts ascend. [Refrain]

3 And when fading from our sight
pass the stars, the day, the night,
Lord of glory, on our eyes
let eternal morning rise
and shadows end. [Refrain]
