silent water falling
rush me over the night
there's a river calling

hush, not a sound
the quiet clearing
hush, not a sound...

throes n' throes a comin'
rush me over this night
those who do the calling

hush, not a sound
the good are weeping
hush - not a sound

coffers 'round us filling
rush thee into the night!
fell the weak and weary

hush, not a sound
the great deceiving
hush, not a sound

with the winter rushes
bending under the white
dear ones, near ones, calling

oh, for the fight
we fared not meekly
give me the night
that I wake clearly
