Day Is Dying in the West

Do we really realize that day is dying in the west?  Life is short and we could go at any moment.   We need to be ready to meet our creator.  Lift up your heads for today could be the day!

day is dying

Day is dying in the west; (aff.)
Heaven is touching earth with rest;
Wait and worship while the night
Sets the evening lamps alight
Through all the sky.

Refrain
Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Hosts!
Heaven and earth are full of Thee!
Heaven and earth are praising Thee,
O Lord most high!

Lord of life, beneath the dome
Of the universe, Thy home,
Gather us who seek Thy face
To the fold of Thy embrace,
For Thou art nigh.

While the deepening shadows fall,
Heart of love enfolding all,
Through the glory and the grace
Of the stars that veil Thy face,
Our hearts ascend.

When forever from our sight
Pass the stars, the day, the night,
Lord of angels, on our eyes
Let eternal morning rise
And shadows end.

~Words: Mary Artemesia Lathbury, 1877

 

How quickly time passes.  Another sunrise, another sunset. 

How important
  • to redeem the time,
  • to walk circumspectly,
  • to watch and be ready

for we know not the day or the hour when the Lord shall return.

Eph 5:15,16  See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
Col 4:5  Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.
Mt 25:13  Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
