Diamond of Night was the entry representing Estonia in the Eurovision Song Contest 1999 in Jerusalem, Israel performed by Evelin Samuel and Camille. This was the first entry from the country to be sung in English due to the rule changes.

The song is an ode to the moon, and on stage, the lyricist is a backing singer, and a harpist, Saale Kivimaaker, is also on stage. Evelin Samuel lost out on going to the 1998 Eurovision, and Kärmas, the lyricist for this song, included a very meaningful last line to the chorus, "Now I can say it is my time" in relation to this. Maian-Anna Kärmas also co-wrote the winning entry, "Everybody" in 2001, again for Estonia.

It was performed last on the night following Bosnia and Herzegovina.  At the close of voting, it finished in 6th place with 90 points.

Lyrics

Silently glowing, moonbeams are sowing silver, silver starry-eyed skies
Burning in fire, words of desire linger, linger, long in disguise

Diamond of night, burning so bright, guide me my silvery new sign
Finding my way as I pray, now I can say it is my time

Voices are calling, whilst stardust falling, reveries, reveries lighten his heart
Silently blazing, stars so amazing, heavenly, heavenly fire from a spark

Diamond of night, burning so bright, guide me my silvery new sign
Finding my way as I pray, now I can say it is my time

Diamond of night, burning so bright, guide me my silvery new sign
Finding my way as I pray, now I can say it is my time

Diamond of night, burning bright, now I can say it is my time
