In the purple hush of the twilight hour
I enter a cathedral, old and gray,
And there beneath its ivy covered tower,
I kneel to pray for strength to meet the day.
I hear the organ's echoes rise and flow
From shadowed nave to lighted altar place --
I gaze upon the tapers' amber glow
While thoughts are drifting idly into space.
But let me pause at a small wayside shrine
Beneath the spreading dome of leafy tree,
Where echoes of the homeward loving kine
Come on the tranquil evening air to me.
There near a weathered cross I kneel to pray
And find the strength I ask to meet the day.
