1 Songs in the night full oft are given,
Soft breathings from the air of heaven,
Sweet zephyrs to the soul;
The pilgrim's lonely heart to cheer,
And bring celestial glories near,
By their divine control.
2 Songs in the night kind heaven supplies,
When cares and troubles round us rise,
Our comfort to destroy;
They bid the tempter far retire,
And fill the soul with holy fire,
Celestial peace and joy.
3 Songs in the night of sorrow's power,
Affliction's tempest, death's dark hour,
The pilgrim yet will sing;
He'll shout with faith's uplifted eye,
O grave, where is thy victory!
O death, where is thy sting!
