When insomnia calls
Take God’s sleeping pill
On His matchless name call
With peace you will be filled.
When turbulence calls
Take God’s peace-meal pills;
On the Prince of Peace call.
And He will make you still.
When restlessness calls
Anchor your soul on His will
On His powerful Name call.
Peace! I say, Peace be still.
3 But You, O LORD, are a shield for me,
My glory and the One who lifts up my head.
4 I cried to the LORD with my voice,
And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah
5 I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the LORD sustained me.
6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people
Who have set themselves against me all around.
6 There are many who say,
“Who will show us any good?”
LORD, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us.
7 You have put gladness in my heart,
More than in the season that their grain and wine increased.
8 I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;
For You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.Ps4:6-8
A Song of Ascents. Of Solomon.
1 Unless the LORD builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the LORD guards the city,
The watchman stays awake in vain.
2 It is vain for you to rise up early,
To sit up late,
To eat the bread of sorrows;
For so He gives His beloved sleep.
Ps127:1-2 New King James Version (NKJV)
