  1. For the toothache -
    St. Peter sat on a marble stone
    Our Saviour came to him alone
    "Peter" said He, "what troubles thee?"
    "The toothache my Lord" said he.
    "Now rise up Peter and come with me
    And the toothache shall not trouble thee".
    A prayer in bed -
    God bless Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
    God bless the bed that i lie on
    There are four corners on my bed
    There are four angels o'er me spread
    Two at my head, two at my feet
    And if I die before I wake
    I pray to God my soul to keep
    Waken now or waken never
    I pray to God my to keep forever.
