1 Day is dying in the west;
Heaven is touching earth with rest;
Wait and worship while the night
Sets her evening lamps alight
Through all the sky.
Holy, holy, holy Lord God of Hosts!
Heaven and earth are full of thee!
Heaven and earth are praising thee,
O Lord most high!
2 Lord of life, beneath the dome
of the universe, thy home,
Gather us who seek thy face
To the fold of thy embrace,
For thou art nigh. [Refrain]
