Know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for Himself: the Lord will hear when I call unto Him.@Psalm 4:3

Isaac Watts, The Psalms of David 1719.

Eagley James Walch, 1860 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Lord, Thou wilt hear me when I pray,
I am forever Thine;
I fear before Thee all the day,
Nor would I dare to sin.

And while I rest my weary head,
From cares and business free,
’Tis sweet conversing on my bed,
With my own heart and Thee.

I pay this evening sacrifice:
And when my work is done,
Great God, my faith and hope relies
Upon Thy grace alone.

Thus, with my thoughts composed to peace,
I’ll give mine eyes to sleep;
Thy hand in safety keeps my days,
And will my slumbers keep.
