Abstract

Deserted by the waning moon,
When skies proclaim the night's cheerless noon,
On tower, fort or tented ground,
The sentry walks his lonely round,
The sentry walks, The sentry walks his lonely round,
And should a footstep haply stray
Where caution marks the guarded way,
where caution marks the guarded way, the guarded way,
Who goes there, Stranger, quickly tell,
a friend, good night, all's well,
good night, all's well.

Or sailing on the midnight deep,
While weary messmates soundly sleep,
The careful watch patrols the deck,
To guard the ship from foes or wreck,
To guard the ship, to guard the ship from foes or wreck.
And wile his thot's oft homeward veer,
Some friendly voice salutes his ear,
Some well-known voice salutes his ear, salutes his ear,
What cheer, Brother, quickly tell,
Good night, all's well, good night, all's well.
