As I bowed down on my knees, I put my head upon my bed,
I talked with the Lord, and these are the words I said.
"Father, I put my trust in You as I prepare to go to bed and sleep,
While rejoicing in knowing that through the night, my soul You will safely keep."
"I will lie down and sleep in peace, while having no fears of any kind,
Since Your always being with me, always brings me great peace of mind."
"Thank You for the Holy Spirit within me, which You sent from heaven above,
Because He surrounds me with His holy presence and His great protective shield of love."
