As the night settles down,
As darkness claims its dues,
As sleep finds you,
As you rest your tired body,
May I wish you some good night?
May you find peace in this night.
May rest find your tired bones.
May rest know you intimately tonight.
May good dreams serenade you.
It is my good night.
And when morning finds you,
And when dawn has run away,
And when the sun kisses your face,
And when sweet slumber gives you up,
You will be in excellent health.
You will be new.
Your soul shall be refreshed.
Your heart shall be glad.
