Sounds of Home – Twelve Again

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the January 12th edition of Sounds of Home!

Evening Star

Evening star up yonder,
Teach me like you to wander
Willing and obediently
The path that God ordained for me!
Evening Star up yonder!

Teach me, gentle flowers,
To wait for springtime showers,
In this winter world to grow,
Green and strong beneath the snow!
Teach me, gentle flowers!

Teach me, lonely heather,
Where songbirds nest together,
Though my life should seem unblest,
To keep a song within my breast!
Teach me, lonely heather!

Mighty ocean, teach me,
To do the task that needs me,
And reflect, as days depart,
Heaven’s peace within my heart!
Mighty ocean, teach me!

Shady lanes, refreshing,
Teach me to be a blessing
To some weary soul each day,
Friends or foes who pass my way!
Shady lanes, refreshing!

Evening sun, descending,
Teach me, when life is ending,
Night shall pass and I, like you,
Shall rise again, where life if new!
Teach me, sun descending!

    Truly a “parable”from the journey of West Denmark. Thanks all.

    Thank you for the story and for the song. Evening Star is one of those songs that is the fabric of my childhood. Much loved by our family.
