#78: Day is Dying in the West

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Day is dying in the west,

Heav’n is touching earth with rest;

Wait and worship while the night

Sets her evening lamps alight Thru all the sky.

CHORUS

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Hosts!

Heav’n and earth are full of Thee!

Heav’n and earth are praising Thee, O Lord most high!

2

Lord of life, beneath the dome

Of the universe, Thy home,

Gather us who seek Thy face

To the fold of Thy embrace, For Thou art nigh.

CHORUS

3

While the deep’ning shadows fall,

Hearth of Love, enfolding all,

Thru the glory and the grace

Of the stars that veil Thy face, Our hearts ascend.

CHORUS

4

WHen forever from our sight

Pass the stars, the day, the night,

Lord of angels, on our eyes

Let eternal morning rise, And shadows end.

CHORUS
