Come, O Night,
Come; enwrap me in your shadows,
Come; hide me away from the light.
Leave me, Light,
Leave me be in the dark,
Leave me to myself in the night.
Away I have run,
Away you have driven me,
Away, out of mind and out of sight.
Return, O Love,
Return to me, my Heart,
Return and never again take flight.
Here, you have come,
Here, you have fought back the night,
Here, you have brought back my heart into the Light!
