'Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
if I should die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take' ?

Never have I heard a prayer
That's filled with so much doubt,
Read Psalm three and verse five
That's what it's all about !

So, when I lay ME down to sleep
God's angels walk the floor,
I dwell in safety as I sleep
'cause I also read Psalm four.

In that Psalm these words I read,
'I laid me down and slept,
and I awoke' once more again
'the Lord sustained and kept'

Psalm 3:5
