Goodnight Lord Jesus, Goodnight

Goodnight Lord Jesus, Goodnight

A Poem by Melinda McQueen

In His Presence.

As I lay in bed,
I lift my spirit to Thee.
Trying my best to get all the junk out of my head 
So I can find sleep. 

As feathers in the wind,
Things float through my mind.
Even so, let sleep come again;
Goodnight Lord Jesus, goodnight. 

Thankful for the day 
Though not much seemed to occur, 
For Thy loving kindness is my stay
No matter what I endure.

In Thy arms of grace
Hold me tight
As in my dreams I seek Thy face;
Goodnight Lord Jesus, goodnight. 

As I lay my burdens down, 
May I remember to praise Thee.
Let me fall asleep to the sound 
Of Thy love rising up in me. 

When the day is done, 
I can rest in Thy sight.
For Thy love has been sung;
Goodnight Lord Jesus, goodnight.

well written, feel the warm embrace of G'd beneath the lines, when everything that we have been taken or go away, then we realize He is the greatest gift that we always have all this time. gift to make "More to this life"

Thanks for share, bless

This is a very beautiful poem ^^ such a wonderful way to end the day and find peace to go to sleep. I often too have many things inside my head which makes it hard to sleep sometimes. I loved everything in this poem, it was well written.

Great Job
