Only Sleeping

Previously recorded by the Perry Sisters.

Written by Diana Perry Gillette

VERSE 1
She tried to remember the faces around her
There in her mind somewhere in time
She always knew
But age had confused her and stolen her from them
They held to her love when angels above
Came to her rescue

CHORUS
Only sleeping in the arms of Jesus
Carried away to rest in His arms
On Angels’ white wings
They may be gone from our sight
But to them it’s just goodnight
Only sleeping in the arms of Jesus

VERSE 2
That night at her bedside they gathered around her
Soon they would know she’d have to go
And leave them behind
She talked of Heaven and dreamed of her mansion
As her time drew near she had no fear
As she closed her eyes

TAG
They may be gone from our sight
But to them it’s just good night
Only sleeping, only sleeping in the arms of Jesus
