Good night

Language: English

The moon is sinking fast my love,
The stars now shine less bright
With a heavy heart must I depart,
Good night, my love, good night.

Heav'n guard thee through the early hours,
And speed the morning's flight.
I will soon return to my heart's sojourn,
Good night, my love, good night.

The moon has sunk at last, my love,
The stars withhold their light
But even in my dreams thine eyes shall beam,
Good night, my love, good night.

Note: the Barili score indicates the author as "W. R. Thayer".
