The Evening Bell

Lyrics

(Anonymous)

Hark! The pealing, softly stealing,
Evening bell, sweetly echoed down the dell,
Sweetly echoed down the dell.

Welcome, welcome is thy music,
Silvery bell, sweetly telling day’s farewell.
Sweetly telling day’s farewell.

Day is sleeping, flowers are weeping,
Tears of dew, stars are peeping ever true.
Stars are peeping ever true.

Grove and mountain, field and fountain,
Faintly gleam, in the ruddy sunset beam.
In the ruddy sunset beam.

Happy hour, may thy power,
Fill my breast, each wild passion soothe to rest.
Each wild passion soothe to rest.
