Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep


She lay her little head on the pillow to pray
God, I've been so good today
Fair at work and fair at play
So now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.

But God, I don't know You, but I really want to!

Then one day her Savior came
Jesus Christ is His name
Her darkness became His light
She was dead to God, but He brought her life
Her blindness became His sight
And His Father became her Father

So now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
And Father God I love You so
And I want everyone to know:
His Father and my Father too

Love,

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
