378. On God’s behalf

I am sick.
My God is not sick.
  Why is He not sick?
He just can’t afford to be sick.
If He too falls sick
Then who will look after me?

God does not sleep.
I sleep. I sleep ceaselessly.
I feel that God needs some rest.
  He deserves some rest
Since He works so hard
  Day in, day out.
  I have a sympathetic heart;
I feel that it is my bounden duty
To sleep and rest on God’s behalf.
