1 All faded is the glowing light
That once from heaven shone,
When startled shepherds in the night
The angels came upon.
2 O shine again, ye angel host,
And say that He is near;
Though but a simple few at most
Believe He will appear.
3 Ye heavens, that have been growing dark,
Now also are ye dumb;
When shall the listeners say, "Hark!
They're singing -- He will come"?
4 Lord, come again, O come again,
Come even as Thou wilt;
But not anew to suffer pain,
And strive with human guilt.
5 O come again, Thou mighty King,
Let earth Thy glory see;
And let us hear the angels sing,
"He comes with victory."
The Hymnal: Published by the authority of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A., 1895
