Poetry: Lord My Soul To Keep

Updated on March 8, 2012

Prayer for God's Help

Now I lay down to sleep

I pray the Lord my soul to keep

My guardian angels against

Powers of darkness protect me

All my burdens at your feet

I lay because to serve you

Is a joy but to serve any other god

A chore.

If it be your will let my consciousness

To me return the following morn’

To continue my journey throu’ life

But should you find it necessary to

Call me home before the morn’ I

Pray you my soul to keep and console

The ones who loved me and the ones

I loved.

Provide for those who depended on

Me and bless those who’ll help them


Teach them the lesson of self-reliance.
