Hymn/Song Information

As shadows cast by cloud and sun.




As shadows cast by cloud and sun
Flit o’er the summer grass,
So, in Thy sight, Almighty One,
Earth’s generations pass.

Flitting away, flitting away,
Flitting like the shadows away;
Flitting away, flitting away,
Flitting like the shadows away.



And as the years, an endless host,
Come swiftly pressing on,
The brightest names
that earth can boast
Just glisten and are gone.

Flitting away, flitting away,
Flitting like the shadows away;
Flitting away, flitting away,
Flitting like the shadows away.



Yet doth the star of Bethlehem shed
A luster pure and sweet;
And still it leads, as once it led,
To the Messiah’s feet.

Flitting away, flitting away,
Flitting like the shadows away;
Flitting away, flitting away,
Flitting like the shadows away.



O Father, may that holy star
Grow every year more bright,
And send its glorious beams afar
To fill the world with light.

Flitting away, flitting away,
Flitting like the shadows away;
Flitting away, flitting away,
Flitting like the shadows away.
