1  Our day of praise is done;
The evening shadows fall;
But pass not from us with the sun,
True light, that lightenest all!

2  Around the throne on high,
Where night can never be,
The white-robed harpers of the sky
Bring endless hymns to thee.


3  Too faint our anthems here;
Too soon of praise we tire;
But O the strains, how full and clear,
Of that eternal choir!
 
4  Yet, Lord, to thy dear will
If thou wilt tune the heart,
We in thine angels' music still
May hear our lower part.


5  'Tis thine each soul to calm,
Each wayward thought reclaim,
And make our life a daily psalm
Of glory to thy name.

6  A little while, and then
Shall come the glorious end,
And songs of angels and of men
In perfect praise shall blend.
