This was referenced in the memoirs of an elderly woman in Colorado. She said it went like this, what she remembers:

Day is dying in the West,
Heaven is touching Earth with rest.

I don't see anything like that second line in the Scout song, plus she is with it enough, I think she would know it if it were the Scout song.

Thanks!

Kat, that one's in the Cyberhymnal.

I'd post here, but in a hurry...

Here are the lyrics

DAY IS DYING IN THE WEST
Words, Mary A. Lathbury, 1877. Music, William F. Sherwin, 1877.

Day is dying in the west;
Heav'n is touching earth with rest;
Wait and worship while the night
Sets the evening lamps alight
Through all the sky.

Refrain

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Hosts!
Heav'n and earth are full of Thee!
Heav'n and earth are praising Thee,
O Lord most high!

Lord of life, beneath the dome
Of the universe, Thy home,
Gather us who seek Thy face
To the fold of Thy embrace,
For Thou art nigh.

Refrain

While the deepening shadows fall,
Heart of love enfolding all,
Through the glory and the grace
Of the stars that veil Thy face,
Our hearts ascend.

Refrain

When forever from our sight
Pass the stars, the day, the night,
Lord of angels, on our eyes
Let eternal morning rise
And shadows end.

Refrain

That site has the sheet music but as PDF, and I do not know how to link to it. The title of the song is "Worship".

As Clairbear said, this old Lathbury hymn is in the Cyberhymnal, lyrics and midi.
Day Is Dying in the West

According to Joe Offer's post: Index: Boy Scout songbook (U.S., 1963) (Date: 18 Jan 05 - 01:59 AM), "Day Is Dying in the West" is also in Boy Scout Songbook (1963 Revision).

Masato, two Scout possibilities-

See lyrics to "All Night, All Day." The first line is often cited as the title, as Joe has done.

Day is dying in the west,
Angels watchin' over me, my Lord
Sleep, my child, and take your rest,
Angels watchin' over me.

and &c.

http"//www.tac-bsa.org/scouting_prayers.pdf

The hymn's first verse only is suggested as a Scout campfire closing (lights out, get to bed, you little---), along with many other possible selections, in the following Scout site.

Day is dying in the west,
Heaven is touching earth with rest,
Wait and worship while the night
Sets her evening lamps alight,
Thro' all the sky.

That sounds to me like two songs stitched together.
I know it as -
All Day, all night,
Angels watchin' over me, my Lord
(not sure how the third line goes),
Angels watchin' over me.

Just found an old thread Angels watching
That one looks like 3 songs stitched together
The last two verses "Now I lay me down to sleep" were taught as a childs prayer, no chorus. And if there was a tune it wasn't the "All day, all night" one.

Mary Ann Lathbury wrote Christian hymns - a quick search will retreave Sherwin's tune through "G"
