Retired Scouter Campfire Songs 


Now The Day Is Over


Now the day is over, night is drawing nigh
Shadows of the evening steal across the sky
Now the darkness gathers, stars begin to peep
Birds and beasts and flowers soon will be asleep
Grant to all the weary, calm and sweet repose
With the kindest blessing, may our eyelids close
Grant to those who suffer rest and balm in thee
Guard the sailors tossing on the deep blue sea
When the morning wakens, then may I arise
Pure and fresh and hopeful, sunrise in my eyes
