As I lay here in the hospital it reminded me off this song and more importantly these great verses.
(Sing to the tune of "Home on the Range")
Oh, give me a bed, just a hospital bed and let me sleep all
through the night.
Whatever you do, please don't wake me at two, let me sleep till
the dawn's early light.
Sleep, glorious sleep, don't wake me at three for a shot.
Can't you see, my dear nurse, that I'm just getting worse
when you wake me at three on the dot?
How often at night do you turn on my light for a temp'rature
check or a test,
Then I lie here and toss, getting angry and cross, will I ever
get some rest?
Sleep, glorious sleep, don't wake me to wa-ash my face,
Let me lie here asleep in a slumber so deep, or I'll
get out of this place.
You woke me at two, now I'm pleading with you, go away and
just leave me alone,
I don't want to count sheep; I just want to sleep, if I need
you I'll call on the phone.
Sleep, glorious sleep, don't wake me at three or at four,
Let me sleep through the night til the dawn's early light,
and I'll never come here any more!
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
- Matthew 11:28-30 (New International Version)
Dear Lord, we thank You that You are our true rest. We pray that we will rest in You in all things. In Jesus’s Name, amen.
