Counting Sheep ~

lamb-of-god free photo

Sometimes at night,
I am unable to sleep
I try but I cannot  . . .
conjure up any sheep.

My mind is too busy,
counting on other things
like the joy and gladness
Jesus’ return will bring.

I number all the ways,
He shows His love for me
then I tally them up
till heaven is all I see.

I combine together,
His mercy and His grace
let my mind travel off
to when I’ll see His face.

Sometimes at night,
when I cannot sleep . . .
I praise the Lord I’m counted
as one of His little sheep!

Psalm 79:13

“So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture
will give thee thanks for ever:
we will shew forth thy praise
to all generations.”

    JOHN DENVER BOBBIE LYRICS..

    I’ll walk in the rain by your side I’ll cling to the warmth of your hand I’ll do anything to keep you satisfied I’ll love you more than anybody can And the wind will whisper your name to me Little birds will sing along in time Leaves will bow down when you walk by And morning bells will chime I’ll be there when you’re feelin’ down To kiss away the fears if you cry I’ll share with you all the happiness Ive found A reflection of the love in your eyes And I’ll sing you the songs of the rainbow A whisper of the joy that is mine And leaves will bow down when you walk by And morning bells will chime I’ll walk in the rain by your side I’ll cling to the warmth of your tiny hand I’ll do anything to help you understand And I’ll love you more than anybody can And the wind will whisper your name to me Little birds will sing along in time Leaves will bow down when you walk by And morning bells will chime

    The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face to shine upon you To shine upon you and be gracious And be gracious unto you The Lord bless you and keep you The Lord lift up the light of His countenance upon you, The Lord lift up the light of His countenance upon you And give you peace, and give you peace; And give you peace, and give you peace By : john rutter
