”At evening time there shall be light!” (Zech. 14:7)

Tune:  Abide with me…

At evening time God´s light will at me smile,

One day I´ll be no longer in exile,

My homeland is with Jesus Christ up there,

I with the saints will meet Him in the air!

Dark moments often came upon my soul,

And yet the Lord knew how me to console,

Despite the clouds Christ always was my Light

And made the gloomy hours glad and bright!

As sunrise coming to me from the East,

On Christ my Lord I cheerfully may feast,

His word His Spirit to my heart applies

And opens up afresh my inner my eyes!

The night´s far gone, His day is soon at hand  (Rom. 13:12)

Where we shall leave this desert´s barren sand,

Our outer man with all that earthen clay

His glory will eternally outweigh!

We gladly should proclaim in every place

The glory of His gospel full of grace,

O, let us never be of Him ashamed

May we again for Jesus be aflamed!
