Fading light dims the sight
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright
From afar drawing nigh
Falls the night.
Day is done, gone the sun
From the lakes, from the hills, from the sky
All is well, safely rest;
God is nigh.
Then goodnight, peaceful night;
Till the light of the dawn shineth bright
God is near, do not fear,
Friend, good night.
