As i lay me down to sleep,
I pray to god my soul to keep.
If I die before I wake
I pray to god my soul to take.
If any evil happens me,
O Blessed Jesus waken me
God within me ,God without me
Twelve Apostles coming about me
Two at my head,two at my feet,
Watch me while i am asleep.
Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John
God bless this bed that I lie on.


Jesus Father Lamb I pray
Drive all evil thoughts away
Be with me night and day
Sleeping,walking on my way
When the hour of hours shall sound
Jesus be within me found,
