From elevated look-out place
I watch the setting sun
It disappears without a trace—
Another day is done.
All day it ruled the sky’s expanse
All functioned in its glow
But now as night the light supplants
Life’s pulse rate beats so slow.
The weary workers homeward bound
No children on the street
The busy world of sight and sound
Will soon be fast asleep.
The doors are shut, the curtains drawn
The chirping birds are still
The final rays of twilight gone
The wind though slight is chill.
Much deeper things I see conveyed;
Dark rules at day’s demise;
Could life and death be here portrayed
Before our very eyes?
So brief’s the time of our sojourn
Soon we must take our leave
Day turns to night—‘twill be our turn—
There’s sudden chill this eve!
But deeper still—what of the Son
Who conquered death’s dark night?
All those in Him when days are done
Will reign in endless light.
