In the movement of eventide,
can a sunset caress both heart and soul?
‘Thus says the Lord’…’Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things’ (Jer.33:3)…’Seek and remember’ (Psalm 105)…
‘Hail, gladdening Light,
of His pure glory poured
Who is immortal Father, heavenly, blest, Holiest of Holies – Jesus Christ our Lord!
Now we are come to the sun’s hour of rest;
The lights of evening round us shine;
We hymn the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit divine!
Worthiest art thou at all times to be sung
With undefiled tongue,
Son of our God, giver of life, alone:
Therefore in all the world thy glories, Lord, they own’
(Circa 3rd 4th Century).
Song: ‘Phos Hilaron’: John Keble 1834 version, arranged by The David Crowder Band from their 2009 album ‘Church Music’ [of which I heartily recommend].
