Gerhard Ter Steegen

Ps. xci.4

Take me, Jesus, to Thy breast;

Folded close in warmth and rest,

Keep me near to Thee;

Silenced in the bliss profound

Of the love that wraps me round,

Every care shall be.

Every breath for Thee alone,

O my heart's beloved One;

Comfort me in sleep.

Still deep rest art Thou to Thine,

Safely in Thine arms divine

Thy beloved keep.
