If we did not go to sleep at night,

we'd never awaken to see the light,

And the joy of watching a new day break,

or meeting the dawn by some quiet lake,

Would never be ours unless we slept

while God and all His angels kept

A vigil through this "little death"

that's over with the morning's breath.

And death, too, is a time of sleeping,

for those who die are in God's keeping,

And there's a "sunrise" for each soul,

for life, not death is God's promised goal.

So trust God's promise and doubt Him never,

for only through death can man live forever! (Helen Steiner Rice, Daily reflections 1946)
