1 Once in the evening twilight,
I dreamt a happy dream,
Me thought I was in heav’n above,
And saw its crystal gleam;
And calm amid the glory,
There stood a singer fair,
Who through the stillness of the night,
Sent forth this song of pray’r:

Father in heaven above,
Glorious and mighty;
Send forth Thy Light of Love,
O King most mighty!
Father, Glorious and mighty;
Send forth Thy Light of Love,
Thy Light of Love.

2 Then in my dream celestial,
I heard the din of strife,
With all earth’s cares and sorrows,
And bitterness of life;
The cry of little children,
The moan of poor and sad,
This song from God’s bright angels
Was sent to make them glad: [Refrain]
