As the day declineth

As the day declineth,
‘mid the shadows dim,
listen, holy Father,
to our parting hymn.
Shadows too have gathered
o’er the land we love,
but thy mercy shineth
like a star above.

Be with all the dear ones
whom we miss tonight,
in the hours of danger
keep them calm and bright.
From the camp and trenches,
from the battle plain,
from the mine-sown ocean,
bring them safe again.

Help, O God of comfort,
all who vainly yearn
for familiar footsteps
that shall not return.
Those who, sad and homeless,
our protection claim,
may we gladly cherish
in our Savior’s Name.

May the shadows draw us
closer, Lord, to thee,
bless to us the lessons
of adversity.
Through our stress and sorrow,
be our strength and stay,
till the night of weeping
wears to peaceful day.

"Vesper Hymn for War Time"
