THE CHRISTIAN'S GOOD NIGHT




Sleep on, belovèd, sleep,
and take thy rest;
Lay down thy head
upon the Savior’s breast;
We love thee well,
but Jesus loves thee best—
Good night!
Good night!
Good night!


Calm is thy slumber
as an infant’s sleep;
But thou shalt wake no more
to toil and weep;
Thine is a perfect rest,
secure and deep—
Good night!
Good night!
Good night!


Until the shadows
from this earth are cast,
Until He gathers
in His sheaves at last;
Until the twilight gloom
be over past—
Good night!
Good night!
Good night!


Until the Easter
glory lights the skies,
Until the dead in Jesus shall arise,
And He shall come,
but not in lowly guise—
Good night!
Good night!
Good night!


Until, made beautiful
by love divine,
Thou, in the likeness
of thy Lord shalt shine,
And He shall bring
that golden crown of thine—
Good night!
Good night!
Good night!


Only “Good night,”
belovèd—not “farewell!”
A little while,
and all His saints shall dwell
In hallowed unison indivisible—
Good night!
Good night!
Good night!


Until we meet again
before His throne,
Clothed in the spotless robe
He gives His own,
Until we know
even as we are known—
Good night!
Good night!
Good night!
