1055. The Evening Light

1 Brighter days are sweetly dawning,
Oh, the glory looms in sight!
For the cloudy day is waning,
And the evening shall be light.

Refrain:
Oh, what golden glory streaming!
Purer light is coming fast;
Now in Christ we’ve found a freedom
Which eternally shall last.

2 Misty fogs, so long concealing
All the hills of mingled night,
Vanish, all their sin revealing,
For the evening shall be light. [Refrain]

3 Lo, the ransomed are returning,
Robed in shining crystal white,
Leaping, shouting home to Zion,
Happy in the evening light. [Refrain]

4 Free from Babel in the Spirit,
Free to worship God aright,
Joy and gladness we’re receiving,
Oh, how sweet this evening light. [Refrain]

5 Hallelujah! saints are singing,
Vict’ry in Jehovah’s might;
Glory! glory! keep it ringing,
We are saved in evening light. [Refrain]
