Round Me Falls The Night ~ Lyrics
1. Round me falls the night;
Saviour, be my light;
through the hours in darkness shrouded
let me see thy face unclouded;
let thy glory shine
in this heart of mine.
2. Earthly work is done,
earthly sounds are none;
rest in sleep and silence seeking,
let me hear thee softly speaking;
in my spirit’s ear
whisper, ‘I am near.’
3. Blessèd, heavenly Light,
shining through earth’s night;
voice, that oft of love hast told me;
arms, so strong to clasp and hold me;
thou thy watch wilt keep,
Saviour, o’er my sleep.
