"Butterfield's Lullaby"

Perhaps you know it better as "Taps"? In Girl Scouts we called it "Day is Done".

Fading light dims the sight
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright
From afar drawing nigh,
Falls the night.

Day is done, gone the sun
From the lakes, from the hills, from the skies
All is well, safely rest;
God is nigh.

Then goodnight, peaceful night;
Till the light of the dawn shineth bright.
God is near, do not fear,
Friend, goodnight.


LTJG John Connors, USN is who comes to mind for UltimaRatioReg when he hears Taps
