Internet Book of Shadows, (Various Authors), [1999], at

                   ALL THRU THE NIGHT    
   While the Moon her watch is keeping   
                   all thru the night    
   While the weary world is sleeping     
                   all thru the night    
   O'er thy spirit gently stealing,      
   Visions of delight revealing          
   Breathes a pure and holy feeling      
                   all thru the night    
   Though this Bard must roam full lonely
   My true harp shall sing praise only   
   Love's soft dream, alas, is over      
   Yet my strains of love shall hover    
   Near the Presence of my Lover         
   Hark! A solemn bell is ringing        
   Thou, my King are heavenward winging  
   Earthly dust from off Thee shaken     
   Soul immortal shalt thou waken        
   With thy last, dim journey taken      
   Neath this Stone my King is sleeping  
   Stars around Him softly sweeping      
   Once and Future King preserving       
   Britain's Saviour there reserving     
   All around him Stars observing        
                   all thru the night    
   Holl am ran-tire sehr thuh wed-ont    
                   ahr heed ah nos       
   Dum-ar forth ee vro go-gawn-yont

           note: The last verse is phonetic Welsh.
                 "ll" is pronounced by putting the tip of your
                 tongue to the roof of your mouth, and saying "h"
                 and "l" at the same time...sort of.
                 "ch" is pronounced as German.
