I.Lord I lay me down to rest,Let me lean upon thy breast;Watch my pillow while I sleep,Thou my soul and body keep.

II.If in death I close my eyes,May I 'wake above the skies;Reach with joy the peaceful shore,Where I'll need this sleep no more.

III.Ah! might I with Jesus 'wake,All my sins, and clogs forsake,O how happy should I be,Blest to all eternity!
