OT: To everyone who’s wondering about anything tonight, or stuck in a storm

Send Us A Quiet Night

Tonight the sky seemed so crowded with stars
You’d think the moon would hide her face;
But when we looked for that circle of light,
She rose and took her place.

Send us a quiet night; send us a quiet night;
Send us a quiet night; send us a quiet night.

Tonight the sea seemed so calm and at ease
You’d think the waves were all below;
God grant a sight of that circle of light,
When the North Atlantics blow.

Tonight the wind blew so sweetly from shore
It set a shiver in the sails;
Bright be the night in that circle of light
Above the deep sea gales.
