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!

Words by Mary Lathbury (1841-1913)

1.  Break Thou the Bread of Life,

Dear Lord to me,

As Thou didst break the loaves

Beside the sea;

Beyond the sacred page

I seek Thee, Lord,

My spirit pants for Thee,

O living Word.

2.  Bless Thou the truth, dear Lord,

Now unto me,

As Thou didst bless the bread

By Galilee;

Then shall all bondage cease,

All fetters fall,

And I shall find my peace,

My All in all.
