The last rays of daylight fan out from the skyline
As faint strands of sunlight with night’s fingers entwine,
The first sprinkles of starlight which herald the night-time
Now make their entrance at the evening’s decline—
Such intricate beauties only God could combine,
For in twilight is pictured prophetic design.

Down the highway of time struts ‘invincible’ man,
So secure in himself, things all going to plan,
In the high noon of life, filled with visions so grand—
But night-time is coming—is his house built on sand?
His twilight approaches, his demise is at hand—
Like the sun through the sky, man’s life has its span.

So likewise the ages are all drawing to close
For the day is far spent, the evening wind blows
Announcing that twilight at the sunlight’s last glows
Is quickly approaching as the Word of God shows—
Be discerning the times which God alone knows—
The Great Day is at hand as in Scripture’s disclosed!

The twilight’s not fearsome to those in Christ’s fold,
It heralds a new dawn which is clearly foretold;
The darkness approaching will never enfold
All those who to Jesus have entrusted their souls—
The Bright and Morning Star, Christ The Lord we behold!!
Oh give glory to God, bless The Lord oh my soul!!

Christian cosmology told in such grand manner. You were able to make a difficult rhyming pattern quite readable.
