Hymn/Song Information

The twilight falls the night is near We




The twilight falls, the night is near ;
We put our work away,
And kneel to Him who bends to hear
The story of the day.


The old, old story ; yet we kneel
To tell it at Thy call,
And cares grow lighter when we feel
Our Father knows them all.


Knows all ! the morning and the night,
The joy, the grief, the loss,
The mountain track, the valley bright,
The hourly thorn and cross.


Thou knowest all : we lean our head,
Our wearied eyelids close ;
Content and glad awhile to tread
The path our Father knows.


And He has loved us ! all our heart
With answering love is stirred ;
And poverty and toil and smart
Find healing in that word.


So here we lay us down to rest,
As nightly shadows fall ;
And lean, confiding, on His breast,
Who knows and pities all.
