Round Me Falls the Night

Text:  William Romanis  1878
Music:  Adam Drese  1698
Tune:  Seelenbrautigam
OHT Incipit:  32345 43215 45676

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.

Earthly work is done,
earthly sounds are none;
Rest in sleep and silence seeking,
Let my hear Thee softly speaking;
In my spirit's ear
whisper I am near.

Darkened now each ray
o'er the traveller's way;
Let me know that Thou hast found me,
Let me feel Thine arms around me,
Sure from every ill
Thou wilt guard me still.

Blessed, heavenly Light
Shining through earth's night;
Voice, that oft of love has told me;
Arms, so strong to clasp and hold me;
Thou Thy watch wilt keep,
Saviour, o'er my sleep.
