Now I Lay Me Down

Now I lay me down to weep.
I pray Thee, Lord, to help me sleep.
But if I cry all through the night,
I pray Thee, Lord, please hold me tight.

I Thank My God

God has led us both together, I can see;
He will guide our lives throughout eternity.
I thank God for you each time I pray,
For our love grows stronger every day.

Refrain:
I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, of you.
I don’t cease to be so amazed at the wonder of you, of you.
Because I love you more than I could ever say,
And I love you more with every passing day.
I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.

 

TBT 1990 ~ My high school sweetheart, to whom I was engaged at one point, wrote a song for me. Later on I added the stanza above. (The refrain is his.) I’ve searched and searched, but cannot find the words he wrote, though I do still have the music. I wrote it out, and I play it at weddings as part of the prelude. I wrote the refrain from memory. You’ve seen some other poems to and about him, if you like to read my TBT poems. His name is Sam White, and he and I are still friends.

One more tidbit ~ The phrase I thank my God upon every remembrance of you” comes directly out of the Bible, and is found in Philippians 1:3.

The original letter from Robert is long lost, but as much as I can remember, it said: Continue reading “To Robert”
