Nightfall 269

Tune: Charlie Obert, 2009
Lyrics: George W. Doane, 1824
Meter: 7s (7,7,7,7)
Softly now the light of day
Fades upon my sight away;
Free from care, from labor free,
Lord, we would commune with Thee.

When for me the light of day
Shall forever pass away;
Then, from sin and sorrow free,
Take me, Lord, to dwell with Thee.
For Cynthia Ann Kissee, 1952-2009
The Judgment is now on page 592.
