1. Song of Night

From the recording P E A C E

Words and music by Shawn Kirchner

When day has passed into the west, and his fires dwindle
Then all things sink into rest, and the stars a-kindle
Night comes! her shadows all enfolding
Night comes! her bright eyes all beholding
Evening robed in her dark gown, stars above: her wondrous crown!
As she passes through the land
all eyes close in slumber.
Souls drift gently into dreams, filled with signs and wonders
Night sings! her sleep brings peace and healing
Night sings! her mysteries revealing
Winds play on her lyre, stars above: a heav’nly choir
Day has risen in the East and his fires have woken
Then must Night her vigil cease, and her spell be broken
Night goes! but blesses as she passes
Night goes; her gift upon the grasses
Casting from her starry crown pearls of dew upon the ground
