  When Twilight Comes
Em Am Em / C Em Am Em Am B / G Am Em / Am B7 Em
Am Dm Am / F Am Dm Am Dm E / C Dm Am / Dm E7 Am

When twilight comes and the sun sets,
mother hen prepares for night's rest.
As her brood shelters under her wings
she gives the love of God to her nest.

Oh! what joy to feel her warm heartbeat
and be near her all night long;
so the young can find repose,
then renew tomorrow's song.

One day the Rabbi, Lord Jesus
Called the twelve to share His last meal
As the hend tends her young
So for them He spent Himself to seek and to heal

Oh what joy to be with Christ Jesus,
Hear His voice, o sheer delight!
And receive His servant care
all before the coming night.

Em Am Em / C Em Am Em Am B / G Am Em / Am B7 Em

So gather 'round once again, friends,
Touched by fading glow of sun's gold
And recount all our frail human hopes
The dreams of young and stories of old.

O what joy to pray close together,
kneeling as one family
By a Mother's love embraced,
In the blessed Trinity.

Em Am Em / C Em Am Em Am B / G Am Em / Am B7 Em

All my favorite hymns. Most of them are from before the Reformation.
