lay your head down, a poem for Isaac

lay your head down
lay your head down, sweet one
enter deep slumbers of peace rest in the arms of your Beloved be not afraid of our sweet release

lay your head down, little one in the lap of your dear Father's love breathe deep in the fragrance as prayers of the saints lift above

lay your head down, dear one your first steps take toward the throne meet your Maker, Creator, Redeemer, and Savior and be blessed; you will not walk alone

lay your head down, precious one though questions may form in your wake you are resting forever, sweetly now and only joy your sweet soul will make

lay your head down, Isaac Brenton and remind us the grave does not win now gently held in goodness and grace we will rejoice with you one day again
