Psalm Lyrics
"I Will Both Lay Me Down in Peace and Sleep"

Psalm lyrics Psalm 8:4.

This simple and beautiful song and round to the words "I Will Both Lay Me Down in Peace & Sleep" has brought me great comfort on a few occasions, reminding me not to worry.

Here is a video (just an audio file made by my iPhone) to allow you hear what this music sounds like:


Here is a closeup look at this page:

Closeup look at piano arrangement of Psalm 4 verse 8, with broken chords in the left hand.

The melody and repeated chords are fairly simple, and if it seems a bit hard, you can use the chord symbols to figure out a left hand part.

The song ends on the DOMINANT chord harmony - rather unusual, but it works in this song, especially if you slowly draw out the final measure's notes.

The melody works as a two part round! 

Begin part two when the first singer sings the final note of line one; the "-ly" of the word "on - ly". 

Here is the same key for guitar players, with guitar tabs to learn the melody:
