Lieber Gott, ich danke dir
Für den Schlaf in dieser Nacht,
Hast gesandt ein Englein mir,
Das hat treu bei mir gewacht.

Alles, was ich tu und denk,
Tu ich heute dir zulieb;
Vater, meine Schritte lenk
Und ein dankbar Herz mir gib.

Ich will brav und folgsam sein,
Dass, wenn ich zum Schlafen geh,
Mein getreues Engelein
Freundlich auf mich niederseh.
