Lullaby for Talitha

Sung to the tune of "If Thou But Suffer God to Guide Thee"

Come rest your head and nestle gently
And do not fear the dark of night;
Almighty God keeps watch intently
And guards your life with all his might.
Doubt not his love nor power to keep,
He never fails nor does he sleep.
