Release Date: November 11, 2011
The new song is a lullaby based mostly on Psalm 121, reminding us that we can sleep in perfect peace knowing that God is watching over us, and that his eyes never close in sleep!
Here is the first new single we’ve finished for the next CD, “White”, that we are working on in the studio right now. It’s a lullaby based mostly on Psalm 121 and reminds us that we can sleep in perfect peace knowing that God is watching over us, and that his eyes never close in sleep!
Then drift away, off to sleep
With a perfect sense of peace
Secure in knowing no harm will fall
For he never slumbers; but he sees all
Once again, a huge thanks to the amazing Nick Garrett-Powell who besides recording and engineering the track, played mandolin, bass, djembe, shaker, finger snaps and sang beautiful harmonies!
The inspiration for this song came from an anonymous poem that I included part of in the first stanza:
Before you sleep, just gently lay
Every troubled thought away;
Just drop your burdens and your cares
In the quiet arms of prayer.
From there I merged several thoughts from Psalm 121 and Lamentations 3:21-26 along with a few other scriptures. As one reviewer has commented:
It has a great lullaby feel to the song. As a Christian father of three young daughters I love the inclusion of Scripture in the lyrics. The last stanza is very prayerful and biblical–“Blessed is the day that the Lord has made, We all rejoice and are glad in it, But though this day is gone, We know that His mercies are new, With the coming of the dawn.” This is a great song to celebrate God’s blessings and mercies daily. —Kevin Davis
