Now the glorious sun is sunk in the west

Language: English

Now the glorious sun is sunk in the west. 
And night with shadowy step advances : 
As we, to the newly betrothed our song addrest. 
With musical verse and dances. 

In the order of them who established rites of old 
For maidens to sing this song, --
Pray the gifts of heaven to gifts of gold, 
Joy and a life long.
