Quotes on SLEEP

O magic sleep ! O Comfortable bird ,

That broodest o'er the trooubled sea of the mind

Till it is hush'd and smooth !

Wynken, Blyken, and Nod one night

   Sailed off in a wooden shoe

Sailed on a river of crystal light

   Into a sea of dew.

I pray the Lord my soul to keep;

If I should die before I wake,

I pray the Lord my soul to take.

Smiles awake  you when you rise.

Sleep, pretty wantons, do not cry,

And I will sing a lullaby

Roc them, rock them, lullaby.

  Belover from pole to pole !

To Marry Queen the praise be given !

She sent the gentle sleep from Heaven

 That slid into my soul.

Quotes on the SEA

Rocked in the cradle of the deep

I lay me down in peace to sleep;

Secure I rest upom the wave,

For thou, O Lord ! hast power to save.
