Hymn/Song Information

When on my day of life the night




When on my day of life
the night is falling,
and in the winds,
from unsunned spaces blown,
I hear far voices
out of darkness calling
my feet to paths unknown.


Thou, who hast made my home
of life so pleasant,
leave not its tenant
when its walls decay;
O Love divine, O Helper ever present,
be thou my strength and stay!


Be near me when all else
is from me drifting
earth, sky, home's pictures,
days of shade and shine,
and kindly faces to my own uplifting
the love which answers mine.


I have but thee, my Father;
let thy Spirit
be with me then
to comfort and uphold;
no gate of pearl,
no branch of palm I merit,
nor street of shining gold.


Suffice it if my good
and ill unreckoned,
and both forgiven through
thy abounding grace
I find myself by
hands familiar beckoned
unto my fitting place.


Some humble door
among thy many mansions,
some sheltering shade
where sin and striving cease,
and flows forever through
heaven's green expansions
the river of thy peace.


There from the music round
about me stealing
I fain would learn
the new and holy song,
and find at last,
beneath thy trees of healing,
the life for which I long.
