Night, I Welcome Thee!Night, I welcome thee!
Thy cover is a blanket,
It hides my doubts
And smothers my fears.
I am debted indeed to thee, dear night,
For, in thy domain, my dreams unfold.
My pains subside.
I am whole.
I need not the harsh, bright day.
It blinds my heart and burns my soul.
I need the courage brought by sleep
To rise and face each morn.
So thanks to thee, from me, dear night,
I love you most of all.
I'll need you 'til the bitter end
To catch me when I fall.
