Author: Mary A. Lathbury Hymnal: The Hymnbook #65 (1955) Meter: 188.8.131.52.4 Lyrics: 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 nigh. [Refrain]
3 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. [Refrain]
