Good Night

Thomas Armstrong (d. 1601)

THIS night is my departing night;

For here nae langer must I stay!

There ’s neither friend, nor foe, o’ mine,

But wishes me away!

What I have done, thro’ lack of wit,

I never, never, can recall!

I hope ye’re a’ my friends as yet;

Good Night! and joy be with you all!
