I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the Lord sustains me.
In peace I will both lie down and sleep,
For You alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety.
I shall also grant peace in the land, so that you may lie down with no one making you tremble. I shall also eliminate harmful beasts from the land, and no sword will pass through your land.
When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
“Then you would trust, because there is hope;
And you would look around and rest securely.
Who keeps us in life
And does not allow our feet to slip.
It is vain for you to rise up early,
To retire late,
To eat the bread of painful labors;
For He gives to His beloved even in his sleep.
In the fear of the Lord there is strong confidence,
And his children will have refuge.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower;
The righteous runs into it and is safe.
“The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace,
Because he trusts in You.
