Till breaks the dawn

(Text ©2013, Robert A. Rife; Music: Bonny Banks and Braes)

Till breaks the dawn from eve to morn,

there walks the Lord in shimmering tide.

He leads me now, in hope reborn,

and in his bosom I, safe, abide.

* * *

Refrain:

With tender voice, he calls my name,

no other voice my confidence has won.

Till dark of evening brings the same,

abides he here till breaks the dawn.

 * * *

Oft have I left my Shepherd’s side,

to roam alone, in valleys of pain;

‘tis then he calls, his crook, my guide,

and brings me to his side again.

* * *

Refrain:

How low and still, he bids me stay,

and feast upon the hills, a son.

When dark of evening calls my name,

abides he here till breaks the dawn.
