Saviour, When Night Involves the Skies
Thomas Gisborne, 1805
|Saviour, when night involves the skies,|
My soul, adoring, turns to thee;
Thee, self-abased in mortal guise,
And wrapt in shades of death for me.
2. On thee my waking raptures dwell,
|3. When noon her throne in light arrays,|
To thee my soul triumphant springs;
Thee, throned in glory's endless blaze,
Thee, Lord of lords and King of kings.
4. O'er earth, when shades of evening steal,
