Lo! The peaceful shades of evening
Slowly falling all around;
Hush to silence ever deepening
Each voice and every sound.

Soon in darkness deep enshrouded,
Wearied nature will repose,
As a life by sorrow clouded
Sinks to rest from all its woes.

When the first bright rays of morning
Tinge with gold each mountain height,
To creation giving warning.
Day has broken through the night.

Then thanksgiving without number
From the earth to Heaven will rise,
As the soul from mortal slumber
Wafts its flight beyond the skies.
