Day is done.....


Day is done, gone the sun,
From the sea, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.

Fading light, dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright.
From afar, drawing nigh, falls the night.

Thanks and praise, for our days,
'Neath the sun, 'neath the stars, neath the sky,
As we go, this we know, God is nigh.

 (Taken from Taps)
Yesterday, we paid tribute to the life of a great lady.
My mentor, my friend, my Mums....gone too soon.


  1. Oh I never knew all the words to taps, great words to farewell someone who obviously was greatly loved by you.

  2. Taps is a bit longer with a few more verses, but in Girl Guides we only ever sung the first verse.
    Another one of my "Mums" gone on to rest. I only have one more Mums now to treasure.

  3. You commented recently that you were always learning from my posts. Well I learn from yours too: usually about your country and so on. This time it is 'taps'. I had no idea that that post was called taps and I certainly didn't know the words.

  4. A rose by any other name is still a rose they say.
    I always knew it as "The Last Post" then I realized it was also known as "Taps."
