Now in the stillness of evening,
Now in the sun’s fading glow;
Sing me that beautiful song, my dear,
The song that I loved long ago.
Dear to my heart are the mem’ries
Brought by that tender refrain;
So sing to me “The Rosary,”
I’m longing to hear it again.

Sing me “The Rosary,”
The sweetest song of all;
Sing me “The Rosary,”
And happy days recall.
Drift again to lands of bliss
Where true loves never part.
Sing me “The Rosary,”
The song that reached my heart. Sing heart.

Oft when the day’s dark and dreary,
Oft when the world’s going wrong;
Then, dear, it’s you who can bring me cheer
By singing that sweet tender song.
Sweet as the song of an angel,
Sent from the heavens above;
So sing to me “The Rosary,”
The song that I always will love.
