No evil shall befall thee,
Dear object of His choice
This night our Lord will call thee,
In a still, small voice,
In a still, small voice,
Thy God saith they that fear Him
Shall heart and soul rejoice;
Then sleep, to wake and hear Him,
In a still, small voice;
Then sleep, then sleep, to wake and near Him,
In a still, small voice,
In a still, small voice,
In a still, small voice,
In a still, small voice.
