When The Night Shades Gently Are Falling


When the night shades gently are falling,
And the lights softly glow in the sky,
Then I think of the home over yonder,
And it seems to be so near by.

Refrain:
O the glory waiting in the homeland,
When our day’s work here is done!
We will be safe home with the Father,
And no sorrow shall ever come.

Whatever the task that is given,
I will faithfully labor on;
Contented if, when it is finished,
The Father shall say “Well done.” [Refrain]

And when my day here is ended,
And the twilight of life I’ve won,
I will face toward home in the evening,
And wait for the lights to come. [Refrain]
