The Day Thou Gavest, Lord, Is Ended
Hymn lyrics and .mp3 Download
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.
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.
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.
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.
