A little something.

So I've been saying/singing an order for Compline most nights, and there's a verse before and after the Nunc Dimittis:

Save us, O Lord, while waking,
and guard us while sleeping,
that awake we may watch with Christ,
and asleep may rest in peace.

And what my brain has done with that is this:

From Randomness

I have no idea whether I'm fitting the words to an existing campfire round or whether I made this one up. I thought, "those words would make a good round" and then it was just sort of there, and it has stayed for a while. But it really does want to be sung as a round, and I can only do that in my head.

Please feel free to use it, or not. And please tell me if I've nicked someone else's tune!

I'm delighted that you like it.

I'll do more when I've finished my degree, I think. If any happen to pop up before then I'll jot them down but really until the end of June I need to keep my head down.
