Day is done...Gone the Sun...From the Lakes, From the Hills, From the Sky...
All is well...safely rest...God is Nigh.
Fading light...Dims the sight...and a star, Gems the sky, Gleaming Bright...
From afar...Drawing nigh...Falls the night...
Thanks and praise...For our Days...neath the sun, neath the stars, neath the sky...
As we go...This we Know...God is Nigh.
