El Paso Evening Hymnody

Farewell, Fiery Sun

I’m grateful to be able to sing at the end of the day, especially on days when the temperature climbs to 104 degrees and the sun seems downright oppressive:

O Trinity, most blessed light,
O Unity of sovereign might,
As now the fiery sun departs,
Oh, shine your light into our hearts.

–CW 591, st. 1; attr. St. Ambrose (340–97)
