The sun is hidden from our sight,
The birds are sleeping sound;
'Tis time to say to all "Good night,"
And give a kiss all round.
Good night, my father, mother dear;
Now kiss your little son;
Good night, my friends both far and near,
Good night to every one.
Good night, ye merry, merry birds;
Sleep well till morning light;
I wish I understood your words;
Perhaps you sing, Good night.
To all my pretty flowers, good night;
You blossom while I sleep,
And all the stars that shine so bright
With you their watches keep.
Good night, Miss Puss; mind what I say,
And tell it to your kittens;
When you with little children play,
Put on your softest mittens.
Come here, my little Fido, too;
You always do what's right;
I wish I was as good as you;
My doggie dear, good night.
The moon is lighting up the skies
The stars are sparkling there;
'Tis time to shut our weary eyes,
And say an evening prayer.
