what grace I miss after I’m snoozing…
Assist me belief, then, Lord, that you simply’re transferring inside me
even after I could appear lifeless to the world;
that your mercy and beauty are shaping my life
in great methods which can be thriller to me…
Open my thoughts, my coronary heart and my soul
that after I wake from a very good night time’s relaxation
I uncover, recuperate and treasure pricey
all of your items to me in my sleep and desires…
Shield me, Lord, whereas I am awake
and watch over me whereas I sleep
that awake, I’d hold watch with you
and asleep relaxation in your peace…
Within the silent hours of night time bless the Lord.
