I found this moving … and would wait until evening to post, but it does end with the request for morning, so I’m using that as my excuse to post now. (You might have to turn up the volume … I did.)

Already the sun is being hidden,
The moonlight is being stolen.
Who hides the sun from us,
Who steals the moonlight?
God hides the sun from us,
The Creator* steals the moonlight.
Let the blessed morning come,
Let the sun rise over the forest.
I sing, the table bends* down,
Behind the house the oak bends,
Beside the well the birch bends,
Above the garden the bird’s perch bends.
Joy is heard all the way to Hiiumaa,
The glow all the way to Courland*,
Pleasure across our land.
Let the blessed morning come,
The sun rise over the forest.?
