Original text and translations
Sunset in the flow'ry dale,
Sunset in the silver bay;
Evening spreads her ebon veil,
Darker shadows round us play.
Slowly o'er the distant scene,
Falla the glorious setting sun,
Who can tell what he hath seen,
Since the busy day begun?
Sunset in the golden West,
Steeped in dew each flow'ret weeps,
'Tis the sacred hour of rest,
Labour's o'er and Sorrow sleeps.
Calm and blessed are the hours,
When the busy day is done,
Peace and sweet repose be ours,
Tranquil as the setting sun.
