Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the Lord my soul to keep,
If I die before I awake.
I pray the Lord my soul to take.

There are four corners on my bed
There are six angels at my head
Two to sing and two to pray and two to carry my soul away.
I place my arms in the form of a cross for love Jesus who died on the cross for love of me.
