When nighttime's here

My room is dark; nobody's here.
But is that something I should fear?
Of course not! I can never be
Alone, for God is here with me.

He's loving me throughout the night,
So everything is always right.
He guards His child—and that means me!
I lie in bed quite happily,

Then soon go off to sleep with joy
To know that every girl and boy
Is always in our Father's care,
For God Himself is everywhere.
