Representative Text

1 One more day its twilight brings,
One more day its shadow flings;
One sweet hour of grateful prayer,
Calling to rest from toil and care.

One day nearer the land of song,
One day nearer the white-robed throng;
There at the gate they watch and wait
For a meeting that shall last forever.

2 One more day of conflict passed,
One more vict’ry gained at last;
One sweet hour in praise to spend,
While at a throne of grace we bend. [Refrain]

3 One more day of reaping o’er,
One more sheaf to crown our store;
One sweet hour to bathe the soul
Here in the streams of joy that roll. [Refrain]

4 Saviour, when as now we rest,
Leaning, trusting on thy breast,
We shall cross the narrow sea
Still may we sing, inspired by thee:— [Refrain]
