Softly Now the Light of Day Lyrics
1 Softly now the light of day
Fades upon my sight away;
Free from care, from labor free,
Lord, I would commune with Thee.
2 Thou, whose all-pervading eye
Naught escapes without, within,
Pardon each infirmity,
Open fault, and secret sin.
3 Soon for me the light of day
Shall forever pass away;
Then, from sin and sorrow free,
Take me, Lord, to dwell with Thee.
4 Thou who, sinless, yet hast known
All of man’s infirmity,
Then, from Thine eternal throne,
Jesus, look with pitying eye.
