Now the Shades of Night are Gone

Melody - "Vienna", Justin H. Knecht, 1797; Seq. by Richard Jordan

attributed to Samson Occom, 1799

Now the shades of night are gone,
Now the morning light is come.
Lord, may we be Thine today;
Drive the shades of sin away.

2. Fill our souls with heavenly light,
Banish doubt and cleanse our sight.
In Thy service, Lord, today
Help us labor, help us pray.

3. Keep our haughty passions bound,
Save us from our foes around;
Going out and coming in,
Keep us safe from every sin.

4. When our work of life is past;
Oh, receive us then at last!
Night of sin will be no more
When we reach the heavenly shore.
