    The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. (Psalm 23:1-6)

    A light went out on Earth for me
    The day we said goodbye
    And on that day a star was born,
    The brightest in the sky
    Reaching through the darkness
    With its rays of purest white
    Lighting up the Heavens
    As it once lit up my life
    With beams of love to heal
    The broken heart you left behind
    Where always in my memory
    Your lovely star will shine

    Day is done,
    gone the sun,
    From the hills,
    from the lake,
    From the skies.
    All is well,
    safely rest,
    God is nigh.
    Go to sleep,
    peaceful sleep,
    May the soldier
    or sailor,
    God keep.
    On the land
    or the deep,
    Safe in sleep.
    Love, good night,
    Must thou go,
    When the day,
    And the night
    Need thee so?
    All is well.
    Speedeth all
    To their rest.
    Fades the light;
    And afar
    Goeth day,
    And the stars
    Shineth bright,
    Fare thee well;
    Day has gone,
    Night is on.
    Thanks and praise,
    For our days,
    ‘Neath the sun,
    Neath the stars,
    ‘Neath the sky,
    As we go,
    This we know,
    God is nigh.
