At Night

There is a sound at night
A sound that ever screams
The sound is always right
And always fills my dreams.

There is a frightened child
Running through darkest night
Terror running so wild
Filling swiftly with fright.

There is a rising moon
A sun so far away
The dawn can’t come too soon
And hope won’t seem to stay.

Dear God

I rise weary and feel the heat of the sun
My joints ache and the warmth begins to soothe
The kindness of God to me is always constant
In pain and in sorrow
When I rise and when I lie down
Great is your compassion towards your servant oh Lord
Praise be to your name forever.
