Asleep in His arms and awaken whole;
Out on daily schedule and safely back home;
Journey mercy on and in the elements;
Healed in sickness, kept in affliction;
True and trusted helper, He's clement.
I rest always relishing His affection.
Therefore on a higher sublime union,
I will savor His sacred communion.
At dawn, noon and late at night,
Whatever the valley or height,
Before reclining in slumber,
Even when I see no coming danger,
Reaching out to His merciful throne,
Saved from falling from His secure zone!
Oh! How grateful I am!
Protected from every harm.
And I wonder why He never sleeps!
Despite work of Love so deep.
