Pass Not From Us with the Sun

Our day of praise is done;
The evening shadows fall;
But pass not from us with the sun,
True Light that lightenest all.
Around the throne on high,
Where night can never be,
The white-robed harpers of the sky
Bring ceaseless hymns to thee.

The Lord Almighty bless us all with his grace.
Christ give us the joy of everlasting life.
And unto the fellowship of the citizens above
May the King of Angels bring us all. Amen.

~ J. Ellerton (1869) & E. Milner-White (1918)
