when i was little i had this version of "now i lay me" framed on my wall.
i still say it every night before bed.
now i lay me down to sleep
i pray thee lord my soul to keep.
thy angels guard me thru the night
and keep me safe til morning light.
help me to know thy love for me
so i a loving child may be
with generous thoughts and a happy face
and pleasant words in every place.
teach me to always say what's true
be willing in each task i do.
please help me to be good each day
and lead me in thy holy way.
i pray whatever wrongs i've done,
you will forgive them, every one.
be near me when i wake again
and bless all those i love.
