Ujamaa Christian Poetry
Lay Me Down
Now I lay me down to sleep,
my soul rests at Your feet.
I look over the course of my day and
I ask forgiveness for my sins.
I praise You, Holy God and give thanks
for sparing my life from the horrible pit.
I thank You for loving me spite of me.
I bless You and minister unto You, my voice of praise.
I give thanks unto You and enter into
Your gates and Your courts with praise and thanks giving.
Thank You Lord of lords, thank You King of kings.
You are my hiding place,
I am most grateful for this private time with You.
I have taken our relationship for granted too many times.
Please forgive me my Lord.
I bow my heart to Your Will for my life.
I pray that You keep me in your perfect peace.
Thank You Father for being Pure, Holy and Divine.
Your glory dwells within this ark,.
Freely I lay my life down that You may increase as I decrease.
Now I lay my life down.
As a seed is cast into the ground to die, so shall I.
