Day is dying in the west

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
  Through all the sky.
  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.
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.

This hymn was my lullaby, years gone by. It sang me to sleep every night.

I have come to love it more and more, as the years go by.

It reaches to the depth of my soul

What a hymn
