Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the sun’s rays not to weep
or linger o’er our earthly aches
but whisper “peace” as stars awake.
Now to rest in awe of night,
to wonder as celestial heights
sing lullabies of mystery
that put our turbulence at ease.
And now to trust within our flesh
the kinship lived in every breath
with all of life — with every soul —
and with the One who makes us whole.
