In the dark, dark hour of the night

I woke up this morning with a song going round my head. It was sung in a sort of 1940s style, a bit like a hymn, I think it was supposed to be reassuring in some way. I could only remember two lines:
"In the dark, dark hour of the night
Comes the final hour

Of course, it's not a real song and I don't remember any dream to go with it.

A DC Elseworld merging Golden Age Hourman and Green Lantern?

Almost certainly lines from a William Ashbless poem, such as:

He whispered, "And a river lies
Between the dusk and dawning skies,
And hours are distance, measured wide
Along that transnocturnal tide--
Too doomed to fear, lost to all need,
These voyagers blackward fast recede
Where darkness shines like dazzling light
Throughout the Twelve Hours of the Night."

-from "The Twelve Hours of the Night"

Obviously I've read Ashbless but not in 20 years or more, and it's hard to get his writings these days.
