My heart is sad my soul is weary
While sailing oe'r life's rugged plain
The clouds are dark the day is dreary
It seems
Angels rock me to sleep in the cradle of love
Bear me over the deep to heaven above
When the shadows shall fall and the savior shall call
Angels rock me to sleep in the cradle of love
There is no earthly friend to guide me
No one to call to heaven's goal
But Christ the savior stands beside me
To cheer and comfort my poor soul
At last the harbor I am nearing
I see the lights along the shore
I hear my friends and loved ones cheering
I'll soon be safe for ever more

    I don't know what should i write you, because i sing it in a few seconds the first time of my life. I'm german and want to sing all american hymns. I have a hymnbook from 1908. I'm not able yet to sing all 1000 hymns. Stay patient! Andreas voigt from germany

    To mean it means one is feeling alone and at rock bottom as we all have at times and as he or she sings praises he is built up and finally realizes there is nothing here on this earth that compares to what the ones who cling to jesus will have in the end and is happy about it.
