Original text and translations
Stars of evening, softly gleaming
In the fading west,
With your heavenly light is streaming
Hope to hearts oppressed!
Toil is over, cease from sorrow,
Sleep and rest!
Hark! the evening bells are bringing
Hope of glad release,
Welcome strains their chimes are ringing:
Labor now shall cease;
Thou the day be long and dreary,
To the weary
So, when death’s dark clouds fall slowly
Over land and sea,
May thy light, serene and holy,
On our pathway be;
Leading us to joy transcending
Rest with thee!
