The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice,
and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him.

Day is Dying in the West
Day is dying in the west, Heav’n is touching earth with rest; Wait and worship while the night sets her evening lamps alight thro’ all the sky.
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, Thro’ 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!
Chorus: Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Hosts! Heav’n and earth are full of Thee! Heav’n and earth are praising Thee, O Lord most high! Amen.
