Bön till natten

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Slut är dagens lust som larmar
vild och kort.
Djupa natt, i dina armar,
bär oss bort.

Vid ditt bröst det nådefulla
skyl vår skam,
medan glömskans timmar rulla
smärtlöst fram,

som en flod, där allt får drunkna,
glider kall
över dolda brott och sjunkna

Du som ensam dig förbarmar
och ger svar,
milda natt, i dina armar,
håll oss kvar.
