GEC English Hymn

STANZA 1
WHEN the day of toil is done,
When the race of life is run,
Father, grant Thy wearied one
Rest for evermore.

STANZA 2
When the strife of sin is stilled,
When the foe within is killed,
Be Thy gracious word fulfilled–
Peace for evermore.

STANZA 3
When the darkness melts away
At the breaking of the day,
Bid us hail the cheering ray–
Light for evermore.

STANZA 4
When the heart by sorrow tried
Feels at length its throbs subside,
Bring us, where all tears are dried,
Joy for evermore.

STANZA 5
When for vanished days we yearn,
Days that never can return,
Teach us in Thy love to learn
Love for evermore.

STANZA 6
When the breath of life is flown,
When the grave must claim its own,
Lord of Life, be ours Thy crown–
Life for evermore. Amen.
