I close my heavy eye - Ever Near
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Ever Near.

1. I close my heavy eye,
  Saviour, ever near!
I lift my soul on high
  thro' the darkness drear.
Be thou my light, I cry,
  Saviour, ever dear!

2. I feel thine arms around,
  Saviour, ever near!
With thee let me be found,
  so shall I never fear,
whatever ills abound,
  Saviour, ever dear!

3. Thine is the day and night,
  Saviour, ever near!
Thine is the dark and light;
  be thou my covert here.
O shield me with thy might,
  Saviour, ever dear!

4. And when I come to die,
  Saviour, ever near!
receive my parting sigh;
  and, in the hour of fear,
be to my spirit nigh,
  Saviour, ever dear!

Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope I, 1878, 138-139.
