Under the Blanket

Not yet morning as I awake

I love the sense You are there

With an urge to follow Your example

I enter into quiet peaceful prayer

I pray for family and dear friends

And those You placed before me on my way

My heart filled with joy and excitement

For I know You hear me as I pray

I pray for things that trouble me

In this world full of evil and sin

Yet I am not anxious, my Comforter

You open Your arms, I enter in

What peace through prayer I am given

Up the mountain high or valley deep

Under the blanket of blessed assurance

I joyfully fall back to sleep…
