Now I lay me.
Down to sleep.

To keep.

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I should die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take
Keep me safe throughout the night
And wake me with the morning light

When my sister and I were little my sister got a Teddy bear that chanted this at the hospital. We still have it somewhere in the basement. I want to get rid of it. But I know what mom would say.

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I die before I wake I pray the Lord my soul to take. If I should live for many days I pray the Lord to guide my ways.

Bonnie, that is inconsiderate! This is a very nice little prayer! Or maybe you aren't Christian... well if you are, you are not showing God's love very well! :(
