Weep no more, poor child of sorrow - Comfort in the night
(Carl Johann Philipp Spitta/Richard Massie/
Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Comfort in the night.

1. Weep no more, poor child of sorrow,
  o'er thy youth's untimely blight;
joy will come again tomorrow,
  grief endureth but a night.

2. Seems it long till purple morning
  streaks the eastern sky with light?
Stars with beauty are adorning
  e'en the sable brow of night.

Richard Massie, Lyra Domestica I, 1863, 91.
Translated from the German Klage nicht, betrübtes Kind - Trost der Nacht
of Carl Johann Philipp Spitta.
