Composer: Welsh melody, c. 1784
Author: James Quinn, 1969
Theme: Evening Hymns
1. Day is done, but love unfailing Dwells ever here; Shadows fall, but hope, prevailing, Calms every fear. God, our Maker, none forsaking, Take our hearts, of Love's own making, Watch our sleeping, guard our waking, Be always near. 2. Dark descends, but light unending Shines through our night; You are with us, ever lending New strength to sight: One in love, Your truth confessing, One in hope of heaven's blessing, May we see, in love's possessing, Love's endless light! 3. Eyes will close, but You unsleeping Watch by our side; Death may come, in love's safekeeping Still we abide. God of love, all evil quelling, Sin forgiving, fear dispelling, Stay with us, our hearts indwelling, This eventide.
