Queen of the purple night,
Rise in thy splendor and shine.
Radiant queen, rise, shine,
Rise in thy splendor and shine.
The whispering zephyrs roam afar,
The surging sea doth pound the shining strand
In cadence weird and cadence grand.
Beauteous queen, rise, arise,
Queen of the night, arise,
Thou sailest in state thro’ the sky,
The waves of the ocean reflect thee,
They show thee wondrous fair,
But thou serene dost glide on the way.
Farewell, thou beauteous queen,
Thou beauteous queen, farewell.
