046 - Day Is Done
Day is done, but love unfailing, dwells ever here.
Shadows fall, but hope prevailing calms every fear.
Loving Father, none forsaking,
Take our hearts of love’s own making,
Watch our sleeping, guard our waking,
Be always near.
Dark descends, but light unending
Shines through our night.
You are with us, ever lending new strength to sight.
One in love, your truth confessing,
One in hope of heaven’s blessing,
May we see, in love’s possessing,
Love’s endless light.
Eyes will close, but you, unsleeping,
Watch by our side.
Death may come in love’s safe keeping,
Still we abide.
God of Love, all evil quelling,
Sin forgiving, fear dispelling,
Stay with us, our hearts indwelling
