(Poem) I Dread the Silent, Soulless Sleep

I dread the silent, soulless sleep,
Terrors whisper before the dawn-
But in the Silence, I peer out
Th’ cleft Rock You sent my soul to keep.

The darkness cloaks its Shadows here,
Dark terrors steal my peaceful sleep!
But in the shadows, I seek out
Th’ cleft Rock You sent my soul to keep.

In silence, but for fatal cry,
Your Son fell to the soulless sleep.
He dragged terrors wi’ him, agony,
Th’ cleft Son you sent my soul to keep.

Th’ cleft Son you sent my soul to keep,
He lights my way past dreary halls.
Into Your chambers, I peer in--
You send my soul to restful sleep.
