Beyond the Sunset

Beyond the Sunset

Beyond the Sunset is a hymn that I remember from childhood. My Dad had a good voice and sang this with joy. Here are the words to the first verse:

Beyond the sunset, O blissful morning,

When with our Savior heaven is begun,

Earth’s toiling ended, O glorious dawning;

Beyond the sunset, when day is done.

Blanche Kerr Brock, Virgil P. Brock, Albert K. Rowswell

As Christians we have a balance to keep. We hold God’s promises dear and look forward to the return of Jesus. At the same time we have a job to do. We are called to be servants of our Lord.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

During this challenging time with the pandemic and political unrest, we may wonder what our role is. Is a global reset coming? We can pray for our country, for our family and for the church worldwide. After we have prayed we can stay alert, paying attention to the Holy Spirit for our words and action.

  1. Sunset’s different for me, in these days.

    Beyond fading of the day,
    and setting of the sun
    is when hell has its way,
    is when the monsters come.
    There is no active cure
    for the tumours’ pain,
    and I must endure
    once more and yet again
    accusations that my days
    were not worthy of their cost,
    and that any praise
    like rising smoke is lost.
    The life I lived is sacrificed
    to waste, and I must cling to Christ.
