Hymn/Song Information

The sun is sinking fast The daylight die




The sun is sinking fast,
The daylight dies;
Let love awake, and pay
Her evening sacrifice.


As Christ upon the cross
His head inclined,
And to His Father’s hands
His parting soul resigned;


So now herself my soul
Would wholly give
Into His sacred charge
In Whom all spirits live;


So now beneath His eye
Would calmly rest,
Without a wish or thought
Abiding in the breast;


Save that His will be done,
Whate’er betide;
Dead to herself, and dead
In Him to all beside.


Thus would I live: yet now
Not I, but He,
In all His power and love,
Henceforth alive in me.


One sacred Trinity,
One Lord divine,
May I be ever His,
And He forever mine.
