Hymn/Song Information

Softly now the light of day Fades upon my sight




Softly now the light of day
Fades upon my sight away;
Free from care, from labor free,
Lord, I would commune with Thee.


Thou, Whose all pervading eye
Naught escapes, without, within,
Pardon each infirmity,
Open fault, and secret sin.


Soon for me the light of day
Shall forever pass away;
Then, from sin and sorrow free,
Take me, Lord, to dwell with Thee.


Thou Who, sinless, yet hast known
All of manís infirmity;
Then, from Thine eternal throne,
Jesus, look with pitying eye.


---Alternative verses---


Softly now the light of day
Fades upon my sight away;
Free from care, from labor free,
Lord, we would commune with Thee.


Soon for us the light of day
Shall forever pass away;
Then, from sin and sorrow free,
Take us, Lord, to dwell with Thee.
