Subject: RE: Lyr/Origin Req: Twilight Is Stealing / ...Falling
It occurs to me now that both Ritchie & I were mistaken: "Twilight Is Stealing" *is* a hymn. The "mansion filled with delight" "beyond the starry sky" is Heaven -- not the singers' lost earthly home. The family evidently did not pay attention, and assimilated the song to "Home Sweet Home".
