  • Father of night, father of day
    Father who taketh the darkness away
    Father who teacheth the bird to fly
    Builder of rainbows up in the sky

    Father of day, father of night
    Father of black, father of white
    Father who builds the mountain so high
    Who shapeth the clouds up in the sky

    Father of loneliness and pain
    Father of night, father of day

    Father of grain, father of wheat
    Father of cold and father of heat
    Father of air, father of trees
    Who dwells in our hearts and our memories

    Father of night, father of day
    Father who taketh the darkness away
    Father who teacheth the bird to fly
    Builder of rainbows up in the sky

    Father of loneliness and pain
    Father of night, father of day

    Father of night and father of day
    Father who taketh the darkness away

    Father of black and father of white
    Father who turneth the rivers and streams

    Father of night, father of day
    Father who taketh the darkness away
    Father who teacheth the bird to fly
    Builder of rainbows up in the sky

    Father of grain, father of wheat
    Father of cold and father of heat
    Father of minutes, father of days
    Father of whom we most solemnly praise

    Father of loneliness and pain
    Father of night, father of day
