237. Hymn for Sleepy Little Heads

This is also known, in my handwritten draft, as "Children's Bedtime Hymn." I wrote an original tune for this entry in my series of "silly but reverent children's hymns," titled BEDTIME. The tune was inspired by "Twinkle, twinkle, little star." My apologies.
Wide-awake and watchful God,
Bless and keep us when we nod.
Guard our sleepy heads.
Make Your angel, strong and good,
Stand, as he has always stood,
By our little beds.

Lord, You want for us the best.
Give us, then, our needed rest.
Send us gentle dreams.
Clear our sins for Jesus' sake,
Now and till at last we wake
Where Your glory gleams.
