G C
By still waters I lay down with the lambs
G D
In pastures green I made peace with my soul
C G
And I cared not for the night
C
While my guiding star shone bright
G C
By still waters I lay down
G
I lay down.


D G D Dsus C
Lay down, I lay me down
D G D Dsus C
Lay down, I lay me down
D G D Dsus C
Lay down, I lay me down
C D G
For my soul.


At the roadside I took toll of my times
In dirty streets I found peace for my soul
May the merciful be right
Are you ready for the night
At the roadside I lay down
I lay down.


Lay down, I lay me down
Lay down, I lay me down
Lay down, I lay me down
For my soul.


In deep sorrow I took flight with the sun
>From mountains high I gained strength for my soul
I proved stronger than the test
When my spirit came to rest
In deep sorrow I lay down
I lay down.


Lay down, I lay me down
Lay down, I lay me down
Lay down, I lay me down
For my soul.
