In sleep

In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe (Psalm 4:8; NLT).

I walk in the Lord’s presence (Psalm 116:9; NLT).

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).


In sleep,
I rest in your arms.

In prayer,
I ask for your help.

In contemplation,
I seek your face.

In suffering,
I beg for your strength.

In joy,
I praise your name.

In life,
I dwell in your presence.

And in death,
I unite with you, for evermore.
