  1. Local Prayers. not found in print.
    To be said before getting up in the morning
    At morn where wouldst thou rise?
    With Patrick to the skies

    To be said before eating your supper at night
    What God gives me and what we take
    'Tis a gift for Christ - His sake
    Be the meal of beans and peas
    God be thanked for those and these

    Getting into bed at night
    I lay myself down with God
    May He rest here also
    His guarding arms about my head.
    His cross my limbs below

    Going to bed at night
    Four great angels around my bed
    Two at my feet and two at my head
    Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
