Carl M. von Weber (1786–1826)


Softly sighs the breath of ev­en­ing,
Stealing through the sha­do­wy grove,
While the stars, in hea­ven shin­ing,
Keep their si­lent watch above.

Heav’nly Fa­ther, while we’re sleep­ing,
Send Thy guard­ian an­gels bright,
Faithful watch above us keep­ing,
To pro­tect us through the night.

When the morn­ing, gent­ly break­ing,
Tints the sky with gold­en rays,
May Thy lov­ing child­ren, wak­ing,
Sing their heav’n­ly Fa­ther’s praise.
