I've set this in 7 shapes. The name is taken from the list of musicians in 1 Chronicles 25.
Lord, thou wilt hear me when I pray;
I am for - ever thine;
I fear before thee all the day,
Nor would I dare to sin.
And while I rest my weary head,
From cares and business free;
'Tis sweet conversing on my bed,
With my own heart and thee.
I pay this evening sacrifice;
And when my work is done,
Great God, my faith and hope relies
Upon thy grace alone.
Thus with my thoughts compos'd to peace,
I'll give mine eyes to sleep;
Thy hand in safety keeps my days,
And will my slumbers keep!
