Twilight falls with peaceful silence

As the Sun’s last rays are flung

Out across a blue horizon

And the evening hymn is sung.

—–

Who can paint so great a picture

Of the sky with gold inlaid?

Who describe such restful silence

When the light begins to fade?

—–

No mortal’s brush can paint that scene,

No pen describe that hush;

No tongue can tell the soul’s response

To that touch of master-brush.

—–

His life was like the great sunset

At the close of each short day,

Except His glory never fades–

And the sunsets pass away.

RANDOLPH WINBURN BARRETT

JULY 18, 1932 COMMON ERA
