Day is Done
Gone the Sun
From the Lakes
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
Gleaming Bright
From Afar
Drawing Nigh
Falls the Night
Thanks and Praise
For Our Days
‘Neath the Sun
‘Neath the Stars
‘Neath the Sky
As We Go
This We Know
God Is Nigh
God Bless you Princess and your family.
