Adam Drese: Round me falls the night


 

Round me falls the night; Saviour, be my light; through the hours of 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 me hear thee softly speaking; in my spirit’s ear whisper: I am near. Blessed, 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. (William Romanis)
