Sleep Sweet Within.

1. Sleep sweet within,
This is Faith's inn,
Wherein her dust reposes,
Until life's morn
In East is born,
And decks the sky with roses.

2. In Jesus sleep,
He safe will keep
His ransom'd and forgiven;
This is the room,
With sweet perfume,
The keeper's lodge to Heaven.

3. Good night, good night!
Beyond earth's blight,
Beyond life's waves of sorrow
We look away
To that long day,
When we shall say,
Good morrow!
