About How Beautiful is Night
Originally composed by Farnon as an instrumental, the lyrics by Milton Raskin were added later. This song was a favorite of George Shearing, who performed it often.


When I see the night
My heart is lost in flight
To some enchanted land beyond the blue
And oh, how beautiful is night with you

Stars awaken, rise and shine
Before my eyes
I’m in a wonderland
I never knew
And oh, how beautiful is night with you

The moon is new
And love holds me fast
And you are mine at last

We kiss and then
My heart sings again

When I see the night
My dreams will hold you tight
I know I’ll find you
When each day is through
And oh, how beautiful is night with you
