1.  Day is dying in the west;

Heaven is touching earth with rest;

Wait and worship while the night

Sets her evening lamps alight

Through all the sky.

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Hosts!

Heaven and earth are full of Thee!

Heaven and earth are praising Thee,

O Lord most high!

2.  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 are nigh.

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Hosts!

Heaven and earth are full of Thee!

Heaven and earth are praising Thee,

O Lord most high!
