River Ness - 6

Here is the River at night - just north of St Mary's Church.

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 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.
