Subject(s): Night; Bedtime


The night has thrown her mantle, and her stars
Come shining on us, singing from afar

Of God and holy things within His hand;
We know not what, but feeling, understand

The song that we may sing, the joy impart;
So those who ask for bread we give -- a heart.

And loving (as the wild winds kiss the rose)
All things, we feel a love around us close.

Tread lightly -- shake the harmony of all
By one misstep? A singing star will fall!
