In Peace I Will Both Lie Down and Sleep

Dusk on Kootenay Lake

In peace I will both lie down and sleep,

for You, Lord, alone

make me dwell in safety and confident trust.

(Psalm 4:8)

It is vain for you to rise up early,

To retire late,

To eat the bread of painful labors;

For He gives to His beloved even in his sleep.

(Psalm 127:2)
