這首歌是營火結束時的歌曲，曲調溫和，緩慢。最常唱的第一段歌詞內容非常有深意，是要童軍們在營火旁自省，“是否有完成今日的工作，有沒有保持我的榮譽，我是否可以毫無罪惡感的入睡，我是否有盡全力挑戰和達到童軍銘言 “準備” ”。
Softly falls the light of day, While our campfire fades away. Silently each scout should ask: "Have I done my daily task? Have I kept my honour bright? Can I guiltless sleep tonight? Have I done and have I dared In everything to be prepared.?"
第二段 Listen Lord, oh listen Lord, As I whisper soft and low, Bless my Mom and bless my Dad, There is something they should know. I have kept my honor bright. The Oath and Law has been my guide. Mom and Dad, this you should know, Deep in my heart I love you so.
露營遇到下雨似乎是全世界童軍的惡夢，所以這首歌也有被改變成和“雨” “淹水” 有關的爆笑版 :
Softly falls the rain today 今天的雨輕輕的下
As our campfire floats away 當我們的營火跟水一起沖走
Silently each guide should ask 我們悄悄的問自己 Did I bring my scuba mask? 有沒有帶潛水面具？ Have I tied my tent flap downs 我有沒有把外帳綁好 Learned to swim so I won't drown. 學游泳所以不會溺水 Have I done and will I try 我有沒有，也將會盡全力嘗試 All I can to keep me dry. 讓我自己保持乾燥!
