As Evening Falls

By David R. Ferguson

Daylight fades as the Sun has set
Twilight still is lingering yet.
See the colors up in the sky
Who put them up there, tell me why?

Now the day darkens toward night,
Still there is a beautiful sight.
Twinkling stars one by one appear
Making God's Presence seem so near.

Light from the stars, the Moon and Sun
Made for us by God's Holy One!
All creation gives Him glory!
As we sing love's greatest story.

From whence came this blessed treasure
Piercing heart and soul with pleasure?
God Almighty did it for us!
Won't you join our happy chorus?

Flee the one who tries to seize us.
Give your life and all to Jesus!
He said we could all receive Him,
If we trust and will believe Him.

He will save us if we obey.
Will you not come to Him today?
You can have your sins washed away.
Be immersed into Him today!
