He Who Watches Over You

It’s late and I’m thinking of going to sleep soon.

In about seven hours it will be time to get out of bed and start a new day.

During those seven hours, my mind will be lost in dreams as I rest and recuperate.

While I am resting, God will be awake—all night.

He will not be sleeping or lost in dreams, unavailable to care for me.

With a continual, unending attention to all that He has created, God never slumbers.

He watches over me when I am awake AND when I am asleep.

*

My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.

 He will not let your foot slip—
    he who watches over you will not slumber;
 indeed, he who watches over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.

 The Lord watches over you—
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
 the sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.

 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
    he will watch over your life;
 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.

—Psalm 121:2-8
