All Thru the Night

Note: The last verse is phonetic Welsh. “ll” is pronounced by putting the tip of your tongue to the roof of your mouth, and saying “h” and “l” at the same time…sort of. “ch” is pronounced as German.

While the Moon her watch is keeping
all thru the night
While the weary world is sleeping
all thru the night
O’er thy spirit gently stealing,
Visions of delight revealing
Breathes a pure and holy feeling
All thru the night

Though this Bard must roam full lonely
My true harp shall sing praise only
Love’s soft dream, alas, is over
Yet my strains of love shall hover
Near the Presence of my Lover

Hark! A solemn bell is ringing
Thou, my King are heavenward winging
Earthly dust from off Thee shaken
Soul immortal shalt thou waken
With thy last, dim journey taken

Neath this Stone my King is sleeping
Stars around Him softly sweeping
Once and Future King preserving
Britain’s Saviour there reserving
All around him Stars observing
all thru the night

Holl am ran-tire sehr thuh wed-ont ahr heed ah nos
Dum-ar forth ee vro go-gawn-yont ahr heed ah nos
Gol-i ar-all you tuh wull ooch
ee are thang os gweer bred vairtch-ooch
tie-leer nave oith m’yoon thu-wail-ooch ahr heed ah nos
