New American Standard Bible (NASB)
24 When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
What a glorious thing it is!
Pleasure beyond description!
To slowly drift into the night
Without thoughts or opposition,
To not linger with your grief or pain,
To not wrestle with those past regrets,
But to bathe in mercy’s sweet, clear waters
Where we forgive and we forget,
Sleep comes quickly to the soul
That turns loose and lets it go,
But to the ones that hold on tight
Restlessness is all they’ll ever know,
So be my guest and turn down the sheets
If slumber from trouble is overdue,
Drop the burdens that stab your heart
And sleep will come to you.
