1. Day is dying in the west, Heaven is touching earth with rest;
Wait and worship while the night sets her evening lamps, alight
through all the sky.
Holy, holy, holy Lord God of Hosts! Heaven and earth are full of Thee!
Heaven 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 night.
3. While the deepening shadows fall, Heart of Love, enfolding all,
through the glory and the grace of the stars that veil Thy face,
our hearts ascend.
4. When for ever from our sight pass the stars, the day, the night,
Lord of angels, on our eyes let eternal morning rise
and shadows end!
