Verse:
Sun - beams are gen - tly fad - ing,  Slow - ly fad - ing,  And birds are wait - ing,
To do their mat - ing,  When e - ven - tide is nigh.
Moon - beams are des - cend - ing,  Day is end - ing,  A hap - py end - ing,
The sun is sink - ing,  Be - low the west - ern sky.
 
Chorus:
Ev - ry lit - tle breeze is sigh - ing of love un - dy - ing at Sun - down.
Ev - ry lit - tle bird is rest - ing and feath - er nest - ing at Sun - down.
Each lit - tle rose - bud is sleep - ing,
While shad - ows are creep - ing.
In a lit - tle cot - tage coz - y the world seems ros - y at Sun - down.
Where a lov - ing smile will greet me and al - ways meet me at Sun - down.
I seem to sigh,  I'm in heav - en,
When night is fall - ing and love is call - ing me home.
