Now I lay me down to sleep.
A lesson in futility.
For to put away
the woes of the day,
I don't have that ability.

My wrinkled soul is weary
from this long and troublesome day.
Tied up in a knot
so no matter what,
I'll never sleep, though here I lay.

Why can't I turn off my brain?
Why can't I get loose from today?
Then so suddenly
it all comes to me,
Why, I simply forgot to pray!

Now I lay me down to sleep.
Oh Lord, you know all my sorrow.
Please do your best
so that I may rest
and not worry about tomorrow.

My gnarled soul relaxes
and sleep, I no longer fight,
for He promised me
to hear my plea,
and sends Angels to guard my night.
