Interval of grateful shade Welcome to my




Interval of grateful shade,
Welcome to my weary head!
Welcome, slumbers, to mine eyes,
Tired with glaring vanities!


My great Master still allows
Needful periods of repose:
By my heavenly Father blest,
Thus I give my powers to rest.


Heavenly Father! gracious name!
Night and day his love the same!
Far be each suspicious thought,
Every anxious care forgot!


Thou, my ever-bounteous God,
Crown’st my days with various good;
Thy kind eye, which cannot sleep,
My defenceless hours shall keep.


What if death my sleep invade?
Should I be of death afraid?
While encircled by thine arm,
Death may strike, but cannot harm.


With thy heavenly presence blest,
Death is life, and labour rest:
Welcome, sleep or death, to me,
Still secure,—for still with thee!
