There is a night watchman

Such men still exist

I have no doubt

There is a night watchman

Who keeps on eye on

And an eye out…


There is a night watchman

Sure as night follows day

Who, through the long, long night,

Does pray

Yes, he does pray


For the night is long

And his burden is light

So he has time enough

To pace and pray through the night


There’s quite a lot to pray about

To record and to remember

Long night in and long night out

And the longest night

Falls in deep December
