Now the glorious sun is sunk in the west
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.
