562. Round Me Falls the Night

1 Round me falls the night;
Savior, be my Light.
Thro' 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 my hear Thee softly speaking;
In my spirit’s ear
Whisper "I am near."

3 Blessed, heav'nly Light,
Shining thro' earth’s night;
Voice, that oft of love hast told me;
Arms, so strong to clasp and hold me--
Thou Thy watch wilt keep,
Savior, o’er my sleep.
