Lay thee down and rest, my love,
beside this peaceful stream.
I'll send a message from Above,
delivered while you dream.
My secrets I've revealed to you,
in many different ways.
You know that I am pure and true,
and with you all your days.
Tenderly I've wooed your heart,
throughout these many years.
Soon now a brand new day will start,
so rest and dry your tears.
Your hand, My bride, I've fairly won;
I am your legal groom.
Now lift up your eyes towards the Son,
for I am coming soon.
