The evening bell

Hark, the pealing, softly stealing

Published in 11 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Hark, the pealing,
Softly stealing
Evening bell!
Sweetly echoed,
Sweetly echoed
Down the dell.

2 Day is sleeping,
Flowers are weeping
Tears of dew;
Stars are peeping,
Stars are peeping,
Ever true.

3 Happy hour,
May thy power
Fill my breast;
Each wild passion,
Each wild passion
Soothe to rest.
