30. As now the sun's declining rays

C.M.

Holy Trinity:

Joseph Barnby, 1861

St. Peter:

Alexander R. Reinagle, 1836

Latin, Charles Coffin, 1736;

Tr. John Chandler, 1837

As now the sun's declining rays

At eventide descend,

E'en so our years are sinking down

To their appointed end.

Lord, on the cross thine arms were stretched

To draw the nations nigh;

O grant us then that cross to love,

And in those arms to die.

To God the Father, God the Son,

And God the Holy Ghost,

All glory be from saints on earth,

And from the angel host.

Amen.
