''O restless soul that sleep eludes''

O restless soul that sleep eludes!
Whence comes your dread of lurid nights,
of shades that inspire your anxious moods
and fainting heart when off are the lights?

Now and anon you are beset
each night by your perplexing fears
of death and dying; their onset
feeds your nightmares and brings you tears.

The fear of Death thus steals your sleep
and robs you of your required rest;
you wilt and flag like errant sheep
that’s deaf to their shepherd’s behest.

But have no fear!—for as your friend
I am here now and forever
for all of time until its end
so that your health improves ever.
