The radiant morn hath pass'd away,
And spent too soon her golden store;
The shadows of departing day
Creep on once more.

Our life is but a fading dawn,
Its glorious noon, its noon how quickly past;
Lead us, O Christ, when all is gone,
Safe home at last.

Where saints are clothed in spotless white,
And evening shadows never fall,
Where Thou, Eternal Light of Light,
Art Lord of all.
