Night Time

Glory to you O God of the night time,
God of our beginning and our end,
God of dusk and day break,
God of sorrow and song,
God of time and eternity.
Glory to you O God of the night time.

Glory to you in your star studded dome,
silently shrouding forest and mountain,
ocean and desert,
the bright busyness of the city lights,
and the quiet breathing of sleepy villages.
Glory to you O God of the night time.

Glory to you in the endless miracles of life,
for babies and visions being born
these coming dark hours,
for those working and those resting,
for those weeping and those loving,
and for those whom you will call
to glory beyond our knowing.
Glory to you O God of the night time.
