Where in the night, Oh, where in the night Is there a light, a light Shining for me? Someone whose eyes, Someone whose arms Are waiting and watching For me. Can there not be, Someone for me, Someone whose heart Now beats alone? Are there not arms? Are there no charms? Is there no love, Shining for me? Long is the way, And dark is the way And my feet are unsure In the perilous night; But I must find the way, Though no man can say Just where in the night I shall finally go. But let there be light! Light in the night! And love shall be shining For me!
