Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

Now I lay me
down to sleep
if I’m not cold
I won’t make a peep

If I have a blanket
to call my own
food in my stomach
and I can call on my phone

If I can see the sunrise
and hear the bird
I will praise you Lord
I won’t say a word...of complaining…

If I can feel the touch
Of my childrens hands
And though I tire
of daily demands

If I can have laundry to do
For clothes are plenty
Dishes to wash
And they’re seldom empty

A family to love
And love me back
Then There isn’t much
that I really lack…

Now I lay me
down to sleep
I pray for others
who often weep

For they have less
than I will ever know
God heal and bless
oh please bestow

All of your blessings
on everyone
I thank you Lord
for all you’ve done…

Now I lay me
down to sleep
I praise your name
For your promises you keep

For my complaining
I repent...
And ask Lord to help me
Be more content……..

In Jesus Name Amen








If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
