Taps lyrics

All sixteen men marched down the ramp. As the plane’s massive cargo door closed, a bugle note cut the clear night like a blade, and “Taps” began to play. 

Those who knew the century-old lyrics recited them inwardly: 
Day is done, gone the sun 
From the lakes, from the hills, from the sky 
All is well, safely rest
God is nigh. 

Fading light dims the sight 
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright 
From afar, drawing near 
Falls the night. 

Thanks and praise for our days 
Neath the sun, neath the stars, neath the sky 
As we go, this we know 
God is nigh.
