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.

As the sun sets on this songs has been the song in my heart to close the Sabbath. The first stanza and the chorus says it all. He is indeed the Lord of all creation, Most Holy one who deserve my praise. Amen

The Sabbath was made for me. I love spending time with the Jesus on the Sabbath.

My 105 year old mother a Presbyterian missionary's daughter sang this with the missions group at evening devotions overlooking the ocean at Sori beach, Korea as a young woman at summer retreats.

Came upon this by chance. Brought back happy memories of singing it years ago. Shame it's out of fashion.

I love this whole song lyrics and melody. Excellent as Our Creator's Holy Sabbath for us sets in.
