Sunset in Guinee Bissau

Guinee Bissau sunset
Setting sun, fading luminary summoning the approaching darkness, thanks for your light.
Setting sun, retiring angel of the midday sky, in your glow all Nature comes to life.
Setting sun, beacon of hope and growth, reminder for the slumbering soul to shine as bright.
Setting sun, model of faithfulness, in the example of your reliability I see what is right.
Setting sun, vanishing light, in the celestial relay you now introduce us to night.
Rising moon, harbinger of peace, your milky white our weary hands stretch forth to invite.
Rising moon, bridge of renewal, we bid you welcome to this planetary dance, cherubim of respite.
