As I Lay Me Down 


It felt like springtime on this February morning 
In the courtyard, birds were singing your praise 
I'm still recalling things you said to make me feel alright 
I carried them with me today, now 

As I lay me down to sleep 
This I pray 
That you will hold me dear 
Though I'm far away 
I'll whisper your name into the sky 
And I will wake up happy 

I wonder why I feel so high 
Though I am not above the sorrow 
Heavy hearted 
Till you call my name 
And it sounds like church bells 
Or the whistle of a train 
On a summer evening 
I'll run to meet you 
Barefoot barely breathing 

As I lay me down to sleep 
This I pray 
That you will hold me dear 
Though I'm far away 
I'll whisper your name into the sky 
And I will wake up happy 

It's not too near for me 
Like a flower I need the rain 
Though it's not clear to me 
Every season has its change 
And I will see you 
When the sun comes out again 

As I lay me down to sleep 
This I pray 
That you will hold me dear 
Though I'm far away 
I'll whisper your name into the sky 
And I will wake up happy
