_I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for Thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety_.–PS. iv. 8.
He giveth His beloved sleep.–PS. cxxvii. 2.

He guides our feet, He guards our way, His morning smiles bless all the day; He spreads the evening veil, and keeps The silent hours while Israel sleeps.
I. WATTS.
We sleep in peace in the arms of God, when we yield ourselves up to His providence, in a delightful consciousness of His tender mercies; no more restless uncertainties, no more anxious desires, no more impatience at the place we are in; for it is God who has put us there, and who holds us in His arms. Can we be unsafe where He has placed us?
FRANÇOIS DE LA MOTHE FÉNELON.
One evening when Luther saw a little bird perched on a tree, to roost there for the night, he said, “This little bird has had its supper, and now it is getting ready to go to sleep here, quite secure and content, never troubling itself what its food will be, or where its lodging on the morrow. Like David, it ‘abides under the shadow of the Almighty.’ It sits on its little twig content, and lets God take care.”
MARTIN LUTHER.
