1 Lord Jesus, in the days of old,
Two walked with Thee by waning light,
And love's blind instinct made them bold
To crave Thy presence through the night;
As night descends, we too would pray
O leave us not at close of day.
2 Day is far spent and night is nigh;
Stay with us, Saviour, through the night;
Talk with us, teach us tenderly,
Lead us to peace, to rest, to light;
Dispel our darkness with Thy face,
Radiant with resurrection grace.
3 The hours of day are glad and good,
And good thy gifts Thy hand bestows
The body's health, the spirit's food,
And rest, and after rest repose.
We would not lose day's golden gains,
So stay with us as daylight wanes.
4 Nor this night only, blessed Lord;
We every day and every hour
Would walk with Thee Emmausward,
To hear Thy voice of love and power;
And every night would by Thy side
Look, listen, and be satisfied.
