Or, slowly passing, only change

From splendour on to splendour.

Before the dying hour of day

Immortal visions wander;

While grief and snow refine them,

And when in death they fade, be ours

Thus gently to resign them.

The lights on yonder snowy range
Shine yet intense and tender;
Or, slowly passing, only change
From splendour on to splendour.
Before the dying hour of day
Immortal visions wander;
Dreams prescient of a purer ray,
And morns spread still beyond her.

Lo! Heavenward now those gleams aspire
In heavenly melancholy;
The barrier mountains, peak and spire,
Relinquishing them slowly.
Thus shine, O God, our mortal powers,
While grief and snow refine them,
And when in death they fade, be ours
Thus gently to resign them.
