The Twilight Song

When shadows fall so far so fast,
it seems the sun has seen its last
Then sunfall gives to evening moon
a twilight song to sing to you
a twilight song to sing to you

When darkness covers all the land
recall you’re just five hours behind
a land where, in five hours time,
we’ll greet the sun with you in mind
Greet the sun with you in mind

Spinning dark to days ahead
the world has given daily bread
to all communion of the saints
All the children every age
All the children every age

For they who live and those, for some,
whose days are long time dead and gone,
whose days are only just begun,
whose days are purely yet to come
whose days are purely yet to come

May he who slept in stormy seas,
who lived in peace with mystery,
whose father took the time to rest
believing then we can be blessed

so bless us as we lay to sleep,
bless our darkness, soft and deep
and bless our love that sees us through
which many waters can’t undo
which many waters can’t undo

(August 2004)
