A prayer said by Grand-mother during the '80s

A Prayer said by Grand-mother during the '80s. She was then over 80 yrs.

As I lie down on my right side
I pray to God to be my guide,
There are four corners on my bed.
There are four angels on it spread.
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John,
God bless this bed that I lie on.
If any hurt or harm should come across me
That the B.V. Mary may come and waken me.
If I am dead or asleep
I leave my soul to God to keep
