I awaken from my sleep
finding my soul yearning
for You in the darkness
of the night

Sleep avoids my eyelids
until I have read Your word
digesting it deep within my
heart and soul

When the morning comes my
eyes open and I search for
You, as my spirit longs with
an insatiable need which
can only be satisfied by You

Finding that I am not filled
until my heart, mind, and spirit
have joined with You, melding
together as one in silent prayer
and sweet joyful meditation

For then and only then will
true restful peace come
occupying the temple within
me, melding with the whole
of all my parts especially
my spirit.

As the soft tranquility of Your
love becomes mine once again,
and I feel its loving grace
refreshing me with the living
waters of your spirit while
also blessing me with Your
wonderful eternal love.

Psalm 63:6
When I remember You on my bed, I meditate
on You in the night watches,

Isaiah 26:9
At night my soul longs for You, Indeed, my
spirit within me seeks You diligently; For
when the earth experiences Your judgments the
inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.
