Dusk.. Night is calling
Light recedes as the sun begins its descent
Darkness inches in
Soon the world will be shrouded in blackness
But your Word O’ Lord shines bright
Even in the darkest of night,
It illumines my path and preserves my soul

Where shall I go from your Spirit?
Or where shall I flee from your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, you are there!
If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
If I take the wings of the morning
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
even there your hand shall lead me,
and your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,
and the light about me be night,”
even the darkness is not dark to you;
the night is bright as the day,
for darkness is as light with you.
