Another Day is Done
Another day is done and in the history books. It was a gorgeous, hot, sunny day, with the promise of a thunderstorm that didn’t materialize. There is something of today, that brought to mind the song “Day is Done” which is often sung to the tune of Taps. And so, as I close out the day, and get ready to turn it, I leave you with these reassuring words for your rest: God is nigh! Rest peacefully knowing He is near!
Taps (Day is Done) by Horace Lorenzo Trim
Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.
Fading light, dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright.
From afar, drawing nigh, falls the night.
Thanks and praise, for our days,
‘Neath the sun, ‘neath the stars, neath the sky;
As we go, this we know, God is nigh.
While the light fades from sight,
And the stars gleaming rays softly send,
To thy hands we our souls, Lord, commend.
