HYMN 758

H.C 545 L.M (FE 792)
“He shall enter into peace, they shall
rest in their beds.” - Isa 57:2

1.  HOW sweet the hour of closing day 

     When all is peaceful and serene 

     And the broad sun’s retiring ray 

    Seeds a mild lustre o’er the scene!

2.  Such is the Christian’s parting hour 

     So peacefully he sinks to rest

     And faith, rekindling all its pow’r 

     Lights up the deepest of his breast.

3.  There is a radiance in his eye

     A smile upon his wasted cheek,

     That seems to tell of glory nigh

     In language that no tongues can speak.

4.  A beam from heav’n is sent to cheer 

    The pilgrim on his gloomy road 

    And angels are attending near

    To hear him to their bright abode.

5.  O Lord, that we may thus depart

     Thy joys to share, Thy face to see 

     Impress Thine image on our heart 

     And teach us now to walk with Thee. Amin
