An Evening Prayer


Just around the corner of my mind

lies the sweet fragrance of the Lord

I close my eyes tight

to try to capture it

Sweet longing fills my heart

Come loser


Lord Jesus

Lord of glory

come to me

fill me

 love me

 Your presence is so sweet

 so pleasant

My soul is at peace

my mind rests with you

The night is waiting

the devil is stirring

I cling to the Lord

He will keep me

Guard me Lord all night

I rest in you

Keep me till the dawn

Make my sleep sweet with you

Show me the glories of heaven

Keep me from discouraging dreams

dreams that torment me

Lord be near me
