41. Walking Alone at Eve

1 Walking alone at eve and viewing the skies afar, Bidding the darkness come to welcome each silver star; I have a great delight in the wonderful scenes above, God in His pow;r and might is showing His truth and love. Refrain: O! for a home with God, a place in His courts to rest. Sure in a safe abode with Jesus and the blest; Rest for a weary soul once redeemed by the Savior’s love, Where I’ll be pure and whole and live with my God above! 2 Sitting alone at eve and dreaming the hours away, Watching the shadows falling now at the close of day; God in His mercy comes with His Word He is drawing near, Spreading His love and truth around me and ev'rywhere. [Refrain] 3 Closing my eyes at eve and thinking of Heaven’s grace, Longing to see my Lord, yes, meeting Him face to face; Trusting Him as my all wheresoever my footsteps roam, Pleading with Him to guide me on to the spirit’s home! [Refrain]
