I found this in an old composition book. I wrote this many years ago for a baby who is turning 33 minutes from now. Time flies indeed…
Easy does it, my child, my sweet delight
Be not afraid of the deep dark of night
Even in the dark His love shines so bright
Do not let bad dreams fill you with such fright
Trust that your Father’s arms do hold you tight
He holds you in His palm and in His sight
Close now your eyes and have faith in His might
Easy does it, my child, ’till morning light
I read this with my daughter – it really shows your faith. Nice timing for us.
Wish I’d read this last night before I sent to sleep. I could have used the reminder then, but it’s nice getting it now, too.
