Rest thou my mind in thee Dear Lord
Give me sweet repose
Take weary flesh and troubled mind
In peace my eyelids close
I've labored in thy fields
The harvest field to reap

And now in quiet evening hours
Give to thy servant sleep
And now I rest in thee alone
Nor darkest night would fear
For in the closing of my eyes
I know that thou are near.
The Family
