7 sacred songs performed at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral

'The Day Thou Gavest Lord is Ended'

Commonly used at evening services, “The Day Thou Gavest Lord is Ended” was written in the 19th century by John Ellerton, a minister of the Church of England.

“This inspiring and uplifting melody sets the lyrics in motion for an ever flowing waltz of affectionate love. These are no mere words of a self focused individual, but from the soul of a person devoted and affectionate to the One true God,” wrote theologian Simon Peter Sutherland.

“They ascribe to God the honor and praise as the One who gave the sinner the gift of each day and night. The knowing that God hears the praises of His people. They give thanks to Him continuously for His provision and building of His Church.”
