Representative Text

1 Softly the shadows darken
The western sky;
Softly the twilight deepens,
To fade and die.

Softly, softly, softly creeps on the night;
Resting safely in Jesus
Till dawns the light.

2 Resting, we sleep in Jesus,
Safe from all harm;
Peacefully rest each moment,
What wondrous calm. [Refrain]

3 Jesus the Friend of sinners,
One Whom we love;
Quiet our hearts before Thee
Oh Lord above. [Refrain]

4 Guard Thou the long night watches
Over Thine own,
Till we awake in glory
Before the throne. [Refrain]
