An-other prayer.
O mother is it asleep you are? O no but dreaming of your son. What is your dream mother?
O Mary when the hour of my departing soul shall lose its hold on earthly things and stand in file of its great Creator O' then be to me a tender mother and place in the arms of your Divine Son Jesus in favour of my poor soul.

This is also another prayer I heard at home.
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 over head,
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, Bless the bed that I lie upon.
If I die before I wake, I pray to God my soul to take.
If any evil come to me, Hail Mary waken me.
God is the branch, Our Lady is the flower
God be with me now, and at my dying hour.
