Poem by John Pierpont
Evening Prayer for a Child
Another day its course hath run, And still, O God, thy child is blessed; For thou hast been by day my sun, And thou wilt be by night my rest. Sweet sleep descends, my eyes to close; And now, while all the world is still, I give my body to repose, My spirit to my Father's will.
