Words by W. T. Peters. Music by Louise Tunlson.
Good night, happy stars, with your yellow eyes;
Good night, lady moon. In the evening skies;
Good night, dusky world and the boundless deep;
I am tired out, it is time to sleep,
Time, time to sleep; good night, good night.
Good night, weary boy; it has been decreed
That some myst'ries only a child can read;
But the sweet child heart may you always keep.
And the stars will be yours and the boundless deep.
The boundless deep, the bound less deep;
Good night, good night.
