SOLEMNLY, mournfully,

Dealing its dole, The Curfew Bell

Is beginning to toll.

Cover the einbers,

And put out the light; Toil comes with the morning,

And rest with the night.

Dark grow the windows,

And quenched is the fire ; Sound fades into silence,

All footsteps retire.

No voice in ihe chambers,

No sound in the hall ! Sleep and oblivion

Reign orer all
