    Day is done, Gone the sun,
    From the lake, From the hill,
    From the sky.
    All is well, Safely rest,
    God is nigh.

    Thanks and praise, For our days,
    Neath the sun, Neath the stars,
    Neath the sky,
    As we go, This we know,
    God is nigh.

    Fades the light; And afar
    Goeth day, And the stars
    Shineth bright,
    Fare thee well; Day has gone,
    Night is on.

    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.
