Vs 1 Have you ever felt the velvet night wrap you in her warmth?
Have you known the soothing darkness lull you into calm?
Have you shared the night stars’ company burning friendly light?
In the dim light God is present
Shepherd of the night
Vs 2 Have you felt strong arms embrace you when you were alone?
Has a sense of peace grown in you ‘til it overflows?
Have your tears brought with them healing like a gentle rain?
In the moments of our solitude
God is doctor for our pain
Vs 3 Just like a gentle breeze you come, spirit God our constant friend
Just like a song you fill our hearts
Just as a flame you light the way lamp of life our brightest friend
Just like a guide you bring us home
Hold me close like a mother with her young
Wrap me ‘round with your embracing love
