Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

Language: English

Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.

Guard me while I sleep tonight;
And wake me safe at dawn's first light,
For now I lay me down to sleep.
Dear Lord, it's you my soul doth keep.

God, bless out Mum,
Bless Dad too.
God help me to be true to you.
