'Tis Night

by Mary M. Bowen

’Tis night on the mountain,
’Tis night on the sea,
Mild dew drops are kissing
The bloom-covered lea;
Like plumes gently waving,
The soft zephyrs creep;
The birds are all dreaming,
Then sleep, darling, sleep.

’Tis night on the mountain,
’Tis night on the sea,
Away in the distance,
The stars twinkle free;
O’er all of His creatures,
His watch He will keep,
Who guardeth the sparrows—
Then sleep, darling, sleep.
