    Those words are from "Taps," which is played nightly in the military for signalling "lights out." Those words are from the second stanza. The original version of the lyrics follow:

    Fading light dims the sight,
    And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright.
    From afar drawing nigh -- falls the night.

    Day is done, gone the sun,
    From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
    All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.

    Then good night, peaceful night,
    Till the light of the dawn shineth bright;
    God is near, do not fear -- friend, good night.
