Peaceful Sleep

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.
