The Day Is Past And Gone The Evening Sha


The day is past and gone,
The evening shades appear;
Oh, may we all remember well
The night of death draws near.

We lay our garments by
Upon our beds to rest;
So death will soon disrobe us all
of what we now possess.

Lord, keep us safe this night,
Secure from all our fears;
May angels guard us while we sleep
‘Til morning light appears.

And when we early rise
And view unwearied sun,
May we set out to win the prize
And after glory run.
