Representative Text

1 I hear the call--I will not stay,
But take my seat without delay;
Should others loiter, I'll be there,
Nor will I miss the time of pray'r.

2 When darkness shades the distant hill
The little birds are hid and still;
And I a quiet sleep may take,
For my Creator is awake.

3 'Tis sweet to lie upon my bed,
And think my Saviour guards my heads;
And he a helpless child can keep
Throughout the silent hours of sleep.
