NOW I LAY ME DOWN TO SLEEP
Poetry by Tammy C. Smith

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord his creatures keep
Safe from harm and danger fate
I pray the Lord his creatures take

To a place of love and kind
Where only peace will they find
In His presence filled with light
No more hunger, no more fright.

As I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord no creatures weep
But only dwell in loving hands
And find respect of Godly man,

To know the love of His great earth
With pelt and flesh and bone no worth ,
Not as game or sport or hunted
But to live as God intended

With dream and slumber shall I breathe
I pray the Lord my prayer receive
And should I die before I wake
I pray the Lord my creatures take.

AMEN
