You Watch Over Me 100704

You watch over me

As I lie fast asleep

And I know there's a smile

On Your face

I can lie down in peace

Knowing You are with me

And the breeze is the breath

Of Your kiss

Your shadow across me

Both warms me and hides me

And it's all the protection

I need

            I do not care

            How dark the night

            I know You will never

            Leave my side

It's all in the knowing

That You watch over me

With Your presence here

No evil can touch me

Your presence surrounds me

In starlight and moonbeam

In quiet I'll lie down

To sleep and to dream

You watch over me.
