Words by Guy Wetmore Carry I. Music by T. Pearsall Thorne.

in the twilight's tender gloom wind- stir the trees,.
And the rose's faint perfume drifts on the breeze;
Stars, like fairy lights, above smile to see the earth asleep,
While the night air breathes of love, soft as moans the heart-sick dove,
Sighing where the shadows linger deep.
Divine light, oh, shine, light, with radiance immortal;
Oh, starlight; oh, far light at heaven's wide portal,
Unfailing, impaling, link thy pure heart to mine;
Steadfast through all eternity shine, white stars, shine.

Ob, sweet love, complete love, my heart leaps to meet thee;
And while your light in the heavens I see,
Sweet love, complete love, my heart leaps to meet thee;
The night air breathes of love to me.

From the woodland's stilly ways faint whispers start,
Murmuring songs of other days soft to my heart.
'Neath the sweep of silent skies, whence comes sunlight, whence comes rain,
Bringing laughter, bringing pain, with a thrill of strange surprise,
To my heart comes love's faint pang again;
Oh, sweet love, complete love, my heart leaps to meet thee;
I know, love, thy glow, love, in rapture I greet thee;
Stars fail, love; turn pale, love; yet Shalt thou live divine,
Steadfast through all eternity shine, pure love, shine.- Chorus.
