Songs of the night, sweet songs of the night,
Softly your echoes fill hearts with delight;
Scenes of the long and wearisome day,
Ended, have vanished away.

Beautiful songs, sweet songs of the night,
Oft ye recall happy moments so bright,
Treasured so dear in memory’s urn,
Past joys that ne’er may return.
