Prayer: "Bedtime Prayer," Old English

Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John,
Bless the bed that I lie on.
Before I lay me down to sleep,
I give my soul to Christ to keep.
Four corners of my bed,
Four corners there aspread,
Two at the foot and two at the head,
And four to carry me when I’m dead.
I go by sea, I go by land.
The Lord made me with his right hand.
If any danger comes to me,
Sweet Jesus Christ deliver me.
He is the branch and I’m the flower,
Pray God watch me at this hour,
And if I die before I wake,
I pray that Christ my soul will take.
