I Lay Me Down - Song History

Words & Music: Dennis Jernigan

Received April 1, 2011


This song came for a small group of people who came to my home to be a part of what we call the Next Generation Creative Institute. This is a quarterly gathering we hold in our home for the purpose of helping creative souls find more of the creative inspiration and outlet God has for them in this life. As always seems to be the case, the enemy was bombarding me with his lies just before what would prove to be a very powerful ministry event. The biggest lies revolve around him reminding me what God has called me to - that not many out there are called to what I am called to...trying to lead me to feeling alone and to ponder giving up. The only problem is that the giftings and callings of the Lord are irrevocable (Romans 11:29)! As I began to put the enemy under my feet by the simple act of praise, I began to sing my prayer to the Lord and as I did I began to sense that those who would be attending the NGCI were facing their own bombardments from the Liar. This song became apparent as I continued to sing my prayer and praise to God. It is meant to be a hymn of faith. The bridge can be extended for as long as the Spirit leads, making a great opportunity for corporate release of melodic prayer.


In peace I will both lie down and sleep,

For You alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety.

Psalm 4:8 NASB
