Hymn/Song Information

When shades of night around us close




When shades of night around us close,
And weary limbs in sleep repose,
The faithful soul awake may be,
And longing sigh, O Lord, to Thee.


Thou true Desire of nations, hear,
Thou Word of God, Thou Savior dear;
In pity heed our humble cries,
And bid at length the fallen rise.


O come, Redeemer, come and free
Thine own from guilt and misery;
The gates of Heavín again unfold,
Which Adamís sin had closed of old.


All praise, eternal Son, to Thee,
Whose advent sets Thy people free,
Whom with the Father we adore
And Holy Ghost forevermore.
