Now the sun has gone to rest
In a golden glory;
Drifting slowly in the west
Red clouds tell their story:
Sun's bright course again is run,
Light and warmth have faded;
Now another day is done,
Earth in night is shaded.

Come, O moon, and bring us light,
Rise in silver splendour,
Pouring down such radiance bright,
Stars may homage render;
See, night's darkness falls away,
Clouds float up to meet thee;
Gleaming now is thy soft ray,
Night's own queen, they greet thee.
