Now, before I run to play,
Let me not forget to pray
To God who kept me through the night
And waked me with the morning light.
Help me, Lord, to love you more
Than I ever loved before,
In my work and in my play
Be close to me through the day.
In the evening:
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray dear God my soul to keep
May God guard me through the night
And wake me with the morning light.
Thank you for all the things we enjoyed today,
Thank you for my family and my friends.
Bless me and everyone I love this night.
