Can't Sleep

            God, I can't go to sleep;
            My eyes won't stay shut.
            I've tried over and over
            And still again, but,

            My mind's not at ease
            And although I have prayed,
            My heart is troubled
            And very dismayed.

            Please give me peace
            And give me rest.
            May I wake up tomorrow
            And do my best.

            So now dear God
            I will try it again.
            I will go back to bed
            And lay down my pen.

            And hopefully this time
            Without further ado,
            I will fall right asleep
            And have dreams of You.
