Part In Peace: Is Day Before Us?

Part in peace: is day before us?
Praise His Name for life and light;
Are the shadows lengthening o’er us?
Bless His care Who guards the night.

Part in peace: with deep thanksgiving,
Rendering, as we homeward tread,
Gracious service to the living,
Tranquil memory to the dead.

Part in peace: such are the praises
God our Maker loveth best;
Such the worship that upraises
Human hearts to heavenly rest.

A beautiful devotional song in praise of the almighty God and His majesty. Simply great.
This poem is lyrical in its overview. A good chord note would add a scintillating feeling. I like the ABAB CDCD EFEF rhythm
Simple sentiments shared elegantly
Absolutely sublime! Great poem written by a great poet!
