"Round Me Falls the Night" by William Romanis, 1824-1899 Text From: THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941) 1. Round me falls the night; Savior, 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. 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, Savior, o'er my sleep.This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Debbie Harris and is in the public domain.
