Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the October 20th edition of Sounds of Home!
Now Peace Descends
Now peace descends on wings of night. On countryside and town,
The stars unveil, the moon grows bright with silv’ry clouds around.
On yonder stream so smooth and slow a boatman drifts along;
With stars above and stars below he sings his evensong:
“Deep stillness reigns from East to West, from shore to distant hill;
Thou pilgrim spirit in my breast, be still, my soul, be still!
“May peace on all the hearts descend that struggle hopelessly!
Peace be with him who is my friend and with my enemy!”
Text: B.S. Ingemann; trans. by S.D. Rodholm
Music: R. Bay
