AIRS SUNG AT BROUGHAM CASTLE: THE KINGS GOOD NIGHT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Welcome, welcome, king of guests
Last Line: And so, best king, good rest.
Subject(s): Homecoming


Welcome, welcome, king' of guests,
With thy princely train,
With joyful triumphs and with feasts
Be welcomed home again.
Frolic mirth,
The soul of earth,
Shall watch for thy delight:
Knees shall bend
From friend to friend
While full cups do thee right
And so, great King, good-night.

Welcome, welcome as the sun
When the night is past:
With us the day is now begun:
May it for ever last.
Such a morn
Did ne'er adorn
The roses of the East
As the North
Hath now brought forth:
The Northern morn is best;
And so, best King, good rest.
