Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray that Lord, Your vigil keep
Me safe from harm until the morn,
And like Your Son, help me to scorn
Temptation, hate, and Satan's lies.
Help me to find the will to try
To carry Your will as my own,
And give me wisdom so I may know
The path I am supposed to take.
Please guide the choices that I make.
Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.
Lord, let me find Your truth again.
The blessings that You've given me
Will never fade from memory.
For all of those I truly love,
Please look down from Your throne above,
And see them through their trials and tears,
But there's one among those I hold dear
For whom I hold a special prayer.
Please let him know I'm always there.
If You can, help him to see
Exactly what he means to me.
And one more thing before I go,
If I should die, please let him know
That he was my strength through days dark and fair,
And I was complete because he was there.
