Lyrics

Still is the night all nature seems to sleep
Save glitt'ring stars reflected in the deep
Comrade thy voice I hear and hail its pow'r
To cheer the silence of the midnight hour
Sweet flows that melody the wave
Along attend and raise the harmony of song
Still is the night all nature seems to sleep
Save glitt'ring stars reflected in the deep
Haste comrade haste ply the feather'd oar
And speed the boat towards that distant shore
Haste comrade haste ply the feather'd oar
And speed the boat towards that distant shore
Still is the night all nature seems to sleep
Still is the night still is the night
