Sleep on!


I miss out on a third of the day
Sleep on
I lie down to sleep and lose control
Sleep on
I don’t want to sleep but remain in charge
Sleep on
Anything could happen to anyone
Sleep on

Lighten our darkness
Sleep on
O Lord we pray
Sleep on
Preserve us
Sleep on
From all dangers
Sleep on

Only God keeps watch while we
Sleep on

Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
