  1. (continued from previous page)
    All praise to Thee my God this night for all the blessing of the Light
    Take me oh take me King of Kings
    Beneath Thine own Almighty wings
    Forgive me Lord for Thy dear Son
    The ill that this day have done
    That with the world myself and Thee
    Ere I sleep at peace may be
    If in the night I sleepless be
    My mind with Heavenly thoughts supply
    Let no ill dreams disturb my rest nor powers of darkness me molest.
    Those prayers were mostly in use about 1820. The most of them came from Co Clare. It is unknown who wrote them.
