Ev'ry day the shining sun,
Rising in the EAST,
Brings its light to land and sea,
Brings its light to you and me,
Wakens bird and beast.
Right hand out, now let it stay,
Pointing EAST, this is the way;
Right hand out, now let it stay,
Pointing EAST, this is the way.

Ev'ry night the setting sun,
Sinking in the WEST,
Takes its light from land and sea,
Takes it, too, from you and me,
Brings the time for rest.
Left hand out, now let it stay,
Pointing WEST, this is the way;
Left hand out, now let it stay,
Pointing WEST, this is the way.

Pointing EAST and pointing WEST,
Straight ahead we'll find,
NORTH before us as we stand,
EAST and WEST on either hand,
And the SOUTH behind.
Pointing EAST and WEST we'll find,
NORTH in front, and SOUTH behind;
Pointing EAST and WEST we'll find,
NORTH in front, and SOUTH behind.
