As I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
Keep my mind safe through the storm
and on lonely nights keep me safe & warm.
When I am weak and don’t know what to do
please show me the way and guide me through.
Be my food when I am hungry and be my water when I need drink,
and reconcile my thoughts when I don’t know what to think.
Help me through this jungle of life,
when my world is full of misery and strife,
and when I don’t have anyone else, save me from my worst enemy, which is myself.
So, as I lay here this very day,
this is what I pray,
that I stay in your will.
