Rest on the hills,
Rst in the trees,
Rest in the wandering, whispering breeze;
"Rest," the sun cries,
As he dies in the sky:
"Rest to you all, for the darkness is nigh."

Cloudless the heavens,
Silent the earth,
Come, peaceful night, to approve the day's worth;
Night is approaching,
"Rest," the sun calls
As he falls out of sight:
Rest to us all through the darkness of night.
