O Love that lights the eastern skyAuthor: Louis FitzGerald Benson

Published in 3 hymnals
1 O Love that lights the eastern sky
And shrouds the evening rest,
From out whose hand the swallows fly,
Within whose heart they nest!
2 O life, content beneath the blue!
Or, if God will, the gray,
Then tranquil yet, till light breaks through
To melt the mist away!
3 O death that sails so close to shore
At twilight! From my gate
I scan the darkening sea once more,
And for its message wait.
4 What lies beyond the afterglow?
To life's new dawn how far?
As if an answer, spoken low,
Love lights the evening star.
