Hymn/Song Information

The night is far spent the day is at




The night is far spent,
the day is at hand;
Already the dawn
may be seen in the sky;
Rejoice then, ye saints,
‘tis your Lord’s own command;
Rejoice, for the coming
of Jesus draws nigh.


What a day will that be
when the Saviour appears!
How welcome to those
who have shared in His Cross!
A crown incorruptible
then will be theirs,
A rich compensation
for suff’ring and loss.


What is loss in this world
when compared to thas day,
To the glory than then
will from heaven be revealed;
“The Saviour is coming,”
His people may say,
“The Lord whom we look for,
our Sun and our Shield.”


O pardon us, Lord! that
our love to Thy Name
Is so faint, with so much
our affections to move;
Our deadness should fill us
with grief and with shame!
So much to be loved,
and so little to love.


O kindle within us a holy desire,
Like that which was found
in Thy people of old!
Who felt all Thy love,
and whose hearts were on fire,
While they waited impatient
Thy face to behold.

THE night is far spent,
and the day is at hand:
No sign to be looked for;
the Star's in the sky;
Rejoice then, ye saints,
'tis your Lord's own command;
Rejoice, for the coming
of Jesus draws nigh.


O pardon us, Lord!
that our love to Thy name
Is so faint, with so much
our affections to move;
Our coldness might fill us
with grief and with shame,
So much to be loved,
and so little to love.


O kindle within us a holy desire,
Like that which was found
in Thy people of old,
Who tasted Thy love,
and whose hearts were on fire,
While they waited, in patience,
Thy face to behold.


How bright it will be, when Jesus appears!
How welcome to those who have shared in His cross!
A crown incorruptible then will be theirs,
A rich compensation for suffering and loss.


Affliction is light compared to the day
Of glory that then will from Heaven be revealed!
“The Savior is coming,” His people may say,
“The Lord whom we look for, our Sun and our Shield.”


O pardon us, Lord, that love to Thy Name
Is faint, with so much our affections to move!
Our deadness shall fill us with grief and with shame,
So much to be loved and so little to love!


O kindle within us holy desire,
Like that which was found in Thy people of old!
Who felt all Thy love, and whose hearts were on fire,
While waiting in patience Thy face to behold!
