    This prayer is said when going to sleep
    I lay my body down to rest
    I pray to God my soul to keep
    And if I die before i wake
    I pray to God my soul to take
    When entering a house
    God bless the work or God bless all here
    When the new moon appears
    God bless the new moon
    God bless me
    God bless as far as I can see
