Peaceful Sleep

One very tiring night I was chasing sleep so I could dream:

Dreams of laying on the beach
The water lulling me to sleep,
Refreshing powerful sleep.

Sleep, sleep, peaceful sleep
perchance to dream
If only I could sleep.
To slumber is a gift from God
At the moment I don’t seem to have.

Dreams of a garden oasis
Fragrant flowers surround
A flowing fountain
Peaceful sleep on a bed of roses

Sleep, sleep, peaceful sleep
perchance to dream
If only I could sleep.
To slumber is a gift from God
I have misplaced my gift, I can’t find

Dreams of a warm spring day
Sitting on the front porch
Watching people on their way

Sleep, sleep, peaceful sleep
perchance to dream
If only I could sleep.
To slumber is a gift from God
Oh where did I put that gift

My eyes are droopy and tired,
Yawning …still sleep escapes
Wait! There it is I see it.

Sleep, sleep, peaceful sleep
Dreaming of Dancing with my Lord
Hearing His song in my heart
To slumber is a gift from God
Sleep, sleep, peaceful sleep.
