A little prayer

I have never been religious, but I do appreciate literature. This old, english prayer has always fascinated me. The first time I heard it was in Metallica’s song Enter Sandman (I’m sure you can find the lyrics somewhere) but today I decided to publish the old one.

Apparently, this prayer has been written in the 18th century.

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep;
And if I die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.
