Catholic Mass Songs Lyrics

John Ellerton (1826-93) - Manoling Francisco, SJ
Album: Something More

1. When the day of toil is done, when the race of life is run,
Father, grant Thy wearied one rest forevermore.

2. When the strife of sin is stilled, when the foe within is killed,
Be Thy gracious Word fulfilled: Peace forevermore!

> 3. When the darkness melts away, at the breaking of the day.
Bid us hail the cheering ray: Light forevermore.

4. When the heart of sorrow tried, feels at length its throb subside,
Bring us where all tears are dried: Joy forevermore!

5. When for vanished days we yearn; days that never can return,
Teach us in Thy love to learn, Love forevermore.

6. When the breath of life is flown, when the grave must claim its own,
Lord of life, be ours, Thy glorious crown:
Life forevermore! Life forevermore!
