When the night falls
And the moon is up high,
You can be rest assured the
Night watchman will be stopping by.
As he does each and every night
When we all go to bed
This is at a time when our comfort
Is most needed so we can rest our heads.
After a long hard days work
After a busy and stressful day,
Whatever the case may be
The night watchman is here to stay.
His role is the greatest of all
His position no man can hold
He’ll never fault at his duties
He watches over all both young and old.
As we go about our daily lives
Day after day night after night
The night watchman is always working
At any given time not once losing sight.
Of every man, woman and child
On any given day as they each come anew
No, he’s not alone he has an army
Of angels as his crew.
Keeping tabs on everyone and everything
Even creatures great and small,
There’s no such thing as out of sight
When the night watchman is on call.
So no matter who, where or what we are
Even if a word is never to be spoken
The night watchman’s eyes and ears
For you and I will always be open.
