Sleep – Child – You Are Safe – Dawn Will Come –


Night SkyNight sky – so still – so far away –
Moon – suspended high above –
Darkness stretching over all –
Moon speaks tenderly –
Tenderly to me –
Morning isn’t
Far away –
Sleep on –
Dawns –

Do not fear shades of night though black as tar –
Close your eyes and rest – for you – dear child –
Belong to Father God – You’re hidden
In His Son –
You are safe
In the Shadow
Of the Almighty –
Come –

Psalm 91:1-7 – The Bible (KJV) – He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
