In the Stillness of the Night

In the stillness of the night,
Go forth my Spirit - on a Heavenly flight,
Over mountains, land and sea.
Fly free - into Eternity.
Then on thy cord of silver
Return to me
And with the morning light
Recapture all the beauties
Thou did see,
That they may dwell in
And be part of me,
So that when this Spirit leaves,
For evermore, this temple for some distant shore
I will behold this secret store of memory,
And know that I am home to stay.
Then will this temple - left behind,
Decay with time
Like an empty vessel
Devoid of wine.
