Written by Major-General Winfield Scot, first published in 1835.

Day is gone, gone the sun
From the hills, from the lake, from the skies
All is well, safely rest,
God is nigh.
Go to sleep, peaceful sleep,
May the soldier or sailor, our God keep
On the land, in the deep,
Safe in sleep. 

Love, good night, must thou go,
When the day and the night need thee so?
All is well.  Speedeth all to their rest
Fades the night, and afar
Goeth day, and the stars shineth bright,
Fare thee well; day has gone,
Night is on.

Thanks and praise, for our days
'Neath the sun, 'neath the stars, 'neath the sky
As we go, this we know, God is nigh.
