As Fades the Glowing Orb of Day
GENERAL, Evening Hymn
As fades the glowing orb of day
Jam sol recedit igneus
Translated by T. J. Potter
S. Webbe (1740-1816)
As fades the glowing orb of day,
To Thee, great source of light, we pray;
Blest Three in One, to ev'ry heart
Thy beams of life and love impart.
At early dawn, at close of day,
To Thee our vows we humbly pay;
May we, 'mid joys that never end,
With Thy bright saints in homage bend.
