Day is done. Gone from the sun.
From the lake. From the hills.
From the sky.
All is well. Safely rest.
God is nigh.
Fading light. Dims the sight.
And a star gems the sky.
From afar. Drawing nigh.
Fall the night.
Thanks and praise. For our days.
'Neath the sun. 'Neath the stars.
'Neath the sky.
As we go. This I know.
God is nigh.
Erected by American Legion, Post 1134.
