'When the night has come, and the land is dark ...'


"When the night has come

And the land is dark

And the moon is the only light we'll see

No, I won't be afraid

Oh, I won't be afraid

Just as long as you stand, stand by me ...."

Night has fallen for the great Ben. E. King, who died earlier today at the age of 76.
