I lie down and sleep;  I wake again, because the Lord sustains me. I will not fear though tens of thousands assail me on every side. Psalm 3:5-6 NIV

Did you hear what happened again last night?
More news of fear and dread
Our country is completely divided
That’s what the polster said

Planes used as weapons of destruction
Intimidation to each and every one
Anxiousness in both young and old
Change freedom’s normal and they’ve won

Now I lay me down to sleep
Please Lord, watch over me
Bring calm to my heart and mind
Let Your peace settle over me

No greater love can ever be given
To lay down one’s life for another
Purchasing freedom has a cost
The highest value placed for others

To love my neighbor as myself
Takes not forgetting to a new height
Breaks the chain revenge has on me
Awaken me Lord, from endless night

Please Lord fill my heart with hope
Especially on this day in September
Jesus give me strength to cope
Transform me as I remember
