Deep the silence 'round us spreading
all through the night.
Dark the path that we are treading
all through the night.

Still the coming day discerning
by the hope within us burning.
To the dawn our footsteps turning
all through the night.

o’er our spirits gently stealing
visions of delight revealing
breathes a pure and holy feeling
all through the night.

Star of faith, the dark adorning,
all through the night.
Leads us fearless t'wards the morning
all through the night.

Though our hearts be wrapt in sorrows
from the hope of dawn we borrow
promise of a glad tomorrow
all through the night.
