To the Pilots, Soldiers and Sailors –I Honor in their peaceful rest ...


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 lake, from the hills, from the sky.
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.

Then good night, peaceful night,
Till the light of the dawn shineth bright.
God is near, do not fear – friend, good night.

Go to sleep, peaceful sleep,
May the soldier or sailor God keep.
On the land or the deep, safe is sleep.

Love, good night, must thou go,
When the day, and the night, need Thee so.
All is well, speedth 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 all our days,
‘Neath the sun, ‘neath the stars, ‘neath the sky,
As we go, this we know, God is nigh.
