As I Lay Me Down To Sleep
A little prayer I whispered so
A blessing for my friend this day
That all your dreams be sweeter yet
As love enfolds your heart always
God bless your day, your sleepy night
And all you love, safe in His sight
Dispel your fears and dry your tears
And hold you close in every plight
Watch o'er your steps where'er you go
And bless your soul, His love to know
Each moment His, He's with you now
His very heart, He made your home
Soft whispers from

Poetry From The Heart
"May God give you...
For every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile
for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial.
For every problem borne, a faithful friend to share,
for every sigh a sweeter song and comfort in each prayer."
