Text by RW:


The sun up above us sings the glories of God and the moon, and the stars of darkness tell of his love.

Wind and rain, snow and lightning sound the praises anew of the Father who guides us from above.

God, that madest earth and heaven, darkness and light, who the day for toil hast given, for rest the night, young old, join the chorus as we praise the Father, Son, and the Spirit, ever three, ever one eternal.

Hills, now, and mountains, birds above, beasts below, all earth’s peoples and rulers, join the song. And so we, with our voices, sing the praises of Him who leads us in our waking hours and guards us through the night; He is faithful and forgiving and He knows us as a Friend, and He takes us to His place of endless light. Young and old, join the chorus as we praise the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, ever three, ever one eternal. Hills now and mountains, birds above, all earth’s peoples and rulers join the song. May thine angel guards defend us, slumber sweet thy mercy send us, holy dreams and hopes attend us, this livelong night. Guard us waking, guard us sleeping, and when we die may we in thy mighty keeping, all peacful lie. And when death to life shall wake us, Thou wilt in thy likeness make us; then to reign in glory take us with thee on high.
