The Sleep Prayer


Now I lay down to sleep,
I pray the Lord the alarm won't beep.
And if I should fail to wake next morning,
I pray the Lord I won't be boring,
But if I do, make sure I miss the Bus,
Just let me fall back asleep without a fuss.
Tell my mother I did my best,
But all I wanted was my rest.
And now I yawn and set my clock,
And make sure that my door is locked.
If I should die before I wake,
That's one less nap I'll have to take.
