Repose is a little child at play,
Frolicking about in his yard all day.
Repose is a child in bed at night,
Asleep without fear until morning’s first light.
Repose is a child in Father’s care:
No trouble or terror can find him there.
Repose is a child in Mother’s arms
Who is safe, secure, and sheltered from harm.
Repose is a child who finds in Christ
A peace that expels all darkness from sight.
Repose is a child who knows his God
Has washed out his sins with Jesus’s blood.
