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 skies

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, goodnight.
