Cast away the works of darkness

Cast away the works of darkness,
haste to gird your armor on,
ere your noon hath lost its brightness,
and the eve of death's begun;
cast away the works of night,
walk as children of the light.

Cast away the works of darkness,
light is dawning from on high,
now when Christ, your King, Redeemer,
came in great humility;
cast away the works of night,
walk as children of the light.

Cast away the works of darkness,
ere your fleeting breath hath fled,
so that when again he cometh,
Judge alike of quick and dead,
ye may through his wondrous love,
meet him in the courts above.

To whose glory ever living,
reigning o'er the realms on high,
with the Father and the Spirit,
One in Three eternally,
ye shall then with angels raise
songs and hymns of endless praise.

(1823-1903)
