1 Still with my Saviour when the sun sinks in the west,
Still in the gloaming, leaning on His breast;
And until the morning breaks eternal in the sky,
Shall my precious Saviour still be ever night.
Jesus, my Saviour, stay forever near my side;
Jesus, my Saviour,
Safe in Thee I hide.
2 Only in Jesus has my soul supreme delight,
Jesus who robes me in His garments white;
So, until the day dawn I shall rest beneath His wing,
Then shall dwell forever with my God and King. [Refrain]
3 Dawn, happy morning, day of gladness and of rest,
Bright day of crowning, last of all and best;
Rise, thou Sun of beauty, O reveal Thy glory now,
Ev’ry tongue shall bless Thee ev’ry knee shall bow. [Refrain]
