Softly now the light of day

Softly now the light of day
fades upon my sight away;
free from care, from labor free,
Lord, I would commune with thee.

Thou, whose all pervading eye
naught escapes, without, within,
pardon each infirmity,
open fault and secret sin.

Soon for me the light of day
shall for ever pass away;
then, from sin and sorrow free,
take me, Lord, to dwell with thee.

Thou who, sinless, yet hast known
all of man's infirmity;
then, from thine eternal throne,
Jesus, look with pitying eye.
