Hymn/Song Information

Slowly by God's hand unfurled Down




Slowly, by Godís hand unfurled,
Down around the weary world
Falls the darkness; O, how still
In the working of His will!


Mighty spirit, ever nigh!
Work in me as silently;
Veil the dayís distracting sights,
Show me heavenís eternal lights.


Living stars to view be brought
In the boundless realms of thought;
High and infinite desires,
Flaming like those upper fires!


Holy Truth, Eternal Right,
Let them break upon my sight;
Let them shine serene and still,
And with light my being fill.


Let my life attuned be
To the heavenly harmony
Which, beyond the power of sound,
Fills the universe around.


---Alternative verses---


Living worlds to view be brought
In the boundless realms of thought ;
High and infinite desires,
Flaming like those upper fires !
