1.  The radiant morn hath passed away,

And spent too soon her golden store;

The shadows of departing day

Creep on once more.

2.  Our life is but a fading dawn,

Its glorious noon how quickly past!

Lead us, O Christ, Thou living way,

Safe home at last.

3.  O by Thy soul-inspiring grace

Uplift our hearts to realms on high;

Help us to look to that bright place

Beyond the sky,

4.  Where light and life and joy and peace

In undivided empire reign,

And thronging angels never cease

Their deathless strain;

5.  Where saints are clothed in spotless white,

And evening shadows never fall,

Where Thou, eternal Light of Light,

Art Lord of all.
