Scripture: Psalm 42:8
1 The day you gave us, Lord, has ended;
The darkness falls at your behest.
To you our morning hymns ascended;
Your praise shall hallow now our rest.
2 We thank you that your Church, unsleeping
While earth rolls onward into light,
Through all the world its watch is keeping,
And never rests by day or night.
3 As to each continent and island The dawn leads on another day,
The voice of prayer is never silent, Nor dies the strain of praise away.
4 The sun, here having set, is waking Your children under western skies,
And hour by hour, as day is breaking, Fresh hymns of thankful praise arise.
5 So be it Lord; your realm shall never, Like earth's proud empires, pass away;
But stand and grow and rule forever, Till all your creatures own your sway.
