Sleeping by Dave Agboola

Sleeping, sleeping, all I know,

When the world is turned a grave,

When the flesh is sure of rest,

What immortal man in cave!

Sleeping, sleeping all is calm,

When the man becomes a ghost,

When his people run from him,

What a work of God is lost!

Sleeping, sleeping here it ends,

Ups and down in world of vain

Which belongs to world alone,

What a pain for man – no gain!
