1. When the starlight fades to amber,
When the dawn proclaims its hour,
We will seek life’s new adventures
With God’s loving care and pow’r.
2. And bright shining Holy Father,
Make us children of the sun,
To help, love and care for others
Like your own belovèd Son.
3. For the earth is like a mother,
She who gives us life and health,
We must care for her and nurture
All of nature, that’s her wealth.
4. When the daylight fades to amber,
Stars come out to guide our way,
And we kneel, its time to pray now,
To end this, a perfect day.
