Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray thee Lord my soul to keep
Thy love go with me through the night
And wake me in the morning light
Oh I would give them anything
If I could keep you here with me
'Cause empty beds make for busy heads
And peace comes only for the dead
So peace for you and me
Sleep, we'll vanish in dreams
I though that if I held you close
They'd never make me let you go
But they'd rather see the summer snow
Than keep God waiting in his thrown
So peace for you and me
Sleep, we'll vanish in dreams
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray thee Lord my soul to keep
Thy love go with me through the night
Please don't wake me in the morning light
