Night is come

Night is come;
stars shine down
twinkling over
field and town.
Now we stop
here to pray:
"Thank you, God,
for this day."

This one sleeps;
this one wakes.
And each one
comfort takes
from the Joy
that surrounds
all Creation
without bounds.

Day by day,
year by year,
may we know,
You are near.
Night by night
from above
teach us mercy,
peace, and love.
