Shelter Of Your Arms Lyrics

by Willie Nelson

Now I lay me down to sleep and if I sleep perhaps Ill dream
And if I dream, Ill be with you in the shelter of your arms
I pray that God will lengthen night and grant me time before the light
For the light of day will take me from the shelter of your arms

And though I know its just a dream, a dream that soon must end
The arms I feel, I know are real and Im happy once again
And if I die while I am asleep, I pray my dreams Hell let me keep
And carry me through eternity in the shelter of your arms

And though I know its just a dream, a dream that soon must end
The arms I feel, I know are real and Im happy once again
And if I die while I am asleep, I pray my dreams Hell let me keep
And carry me through eternity in the shelter of your arms
