  1. Jesus this hour I give to thee,
    From all the past, oh pardon me,
    I know my soul will soon depart.
    And hide me in thy Sacred Heart.
    Heart of Jesus I adore Thee,
    Heart of Mary I implore thee
    Heart of Joseph true and just.
    In those three hearts,
    I place my trust,
    I lie in my bed as I lie in my grave
    And if I die before I wake
    I give my soul up to
    Jesus, Mary, and Joseph to take.
    As I lie down here to sleep,
    I give my soul to Jesus to keep.
    And if I die before I wake,
    I pray Sacred Jesus my soul to Take.
    There are four corners on my bed,
    Four bright angels overhead.
    Saints Matthew, Mark, Luke & John
    God bless this bed that I lie on.
    When I'm asleep and cannot see,
    Jesus Christ watch over me,
