The day Thou gavest, Lord, is ended, The dark-ness falls at Thy be-hest;

To Thee our morning hymns as-cended, Thy praise shall hal- low now our rest.
[[Full Lyrics]] [Verse 1] The day Thou gavest, Lord, is ended; The darkness falls at Thy behest; To Thee our morning hymns ascended; Thy praise shall hallow now our rest. [Verse 2] We thank Thee that Thy church, unsleeping While earth rolls onward into light, Through all the world her watch is keeping, And rests not now by day or night. [Verse 3] As o’er each continent and island The dawn leads on another day, The voice of prayer is never silent, Nor die the strains of praise away. [Verse 4] So be it, Lord; Thy throne shall never, Like earth’s proud empires, pass away. Thy kingdom stands, and grows forever, Till all Thy creatures own Thy sway.
