Hymn/Song Information

The day Thou gavest Lord is ended




The day Thou gavest, Lord, is ended,
The darkness falls at Thy behest;
To Thee our morning hymns ascended,
Thy praise shall hallow now our rest.


We thank Thee that
Thy Church unsleeping,
While earth rolls onwards into light,
Through all the world
her watch is keeping
And rests not now by day or night.


As o'er each continent and island
The dawn leads on another day,
The voice of prayer, is never silent,
Nor dies the strains of praise away.


The sun, that bids us rest, is waking
Our brethren neath the western sky.
And hour by hour fresh lips are making
Thy wondrous doings heard on high.


So be it, Lord; Thy throne shall never,
Like earth's proud empires, pass away;
But stand, and rule, and grow for ever,
Till all Thy creatures own Thy sway.
