Words (1878) by William Romanis (1824-1899), a priest of the Church of England


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;

To my spirit here

Whisper, “I am near.”

3.  Darkened now each ray

O’er the traveler’s way;

Let me know that Thou has found me,

Let me feel Thine arms around me,

Sure from every ill

Thou wilt guard me still.

4.  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.
