When the Night is Falling

Over the past few years, I don’t think any other song has moved me as much as this one, with the possible exceptions of “Arise, My Love” and “Your Grace Still Amazes Me”. I love the simplicity of heart these words speak, and who can help but find great joy in the idea of the Heavenly Father saying “How I love you, child I love you”? Simply beautiful.

When the night is falling,
And the day is done,
I can hear You calling, “Come.”
I will come while You sing over me.

When the night surrounds me,
All my dreams undone,
I can hear You calling, “Come.”
I will come while You sing over me.
When the night would hide my way,
I will listen until I hear You say…

How I love you, child, I love you.
How I love you, child, I love you.
How I love you.
How I love you, child, I love you.
How I love you, child, I love you.
How I love you.

When this life is over,
And the race is run,
I will hear You calling, “Come.”
I will come while You sing over me,

How I love you, child, I love you.
How I love you, child, I love you.
How I love you.
How I love you, child, I love you.
How I love you, child, I love you.
How I love you.
–Dennis Jernigan
