Beloved Sleep


“For You give Your beloved sleep.

Making me to lie down in green pastures.

Resting by the sandal of Your feet.

Quenching the thirsting of my soul with

Fresh waters of Your drink.

Leading me by the Comfort of Your side;

In Your Peace and healing, my body does revive.

Feasting upon the abundance of Your Bread.

Tension far removed.

Your Words of Life are

Refreshment for my head.”


“In is vain that you rise up early and go late to rest,

Eating the bread of anxious toil;

For He gives to His beloved sleep.” Psalm 127:2 (ESV)


“In returning and rest you shall be saved;

In quietness and in trust shall be your strength.” Isaiah 30:15 (ESV)
