Now on land and sea descending
Brings the night its peace profound;
Let our vesper hymn be blending
With the holy calm around.
Soon as dies the sunset glory,
Stars of heav'n shine out above;
Telling still the ancient story,
Their Creator's changeless love.
As the darkness deepens o'er us,
Lo, eternal stars arise;
Hope and faith and love rise glorious,
Shining in the spirit's skies.
