1  So good night! So good night!
To each weary toil-worn wight!
Now the day so sweetly closes,
Each aching brow, each brow reposes
Peacefully till the morning light;
Good night! Good night!

2  Sweetly sleep! Sweetly sleep!
Eden's breezes round ye sweep,
O'er the peace-forsaken lover,
Let the darling image hover
As he lies in transport deep;
Good night! Good night!

3  So good night! So good night!
Slumber on till morning light!
Slumber till another morrow
Brings each store of joy and sorrow;
Fearless in the Father's sight,
Slumber on, good night, good night!
