Hymn/Song Information

Again as evening's shadow falls We




Again, as eveningís shadow falls,
We gather in these hallowed walls;
And vesper hymn and vesper prayer
Rise mingling on the holy air.


May struggling hearts that seek release
Here find the rest of Godís own peace;
And, strengthened here
by hymn and prayer,
Lay down the burden and the care.


O God, our Light! to Thee we bow;
Within all shadows standest Thou;
Give deeper calm than night can bring;
Give sweeter songs than lips can sing.


Lifeís tumult we must meet again,
We cannot at the shrine remain;
But in the spiritís secret cell
May hymn and prayer forever dwell.
