Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

Gilly:

Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the lord my soul to keep.
And, if I die be-fore I wake.
Is this the way you pray?
Oh, now I lay me down to sleep.
Afraid at night, the monsters creep.
And, I’m a-afraid to close my eyes,
if you should go a-way.

In the dark they hide beneath my bed.
Hide from them, I cover up my head.
What if I should die be-fore I wake?
Dad, I’m so afraid.

Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the lord my soul to keep.
And, if I die be-fore I wake.
Is this the way to pray?
Oh, now I lay me down to sleep.
Afraid at night, the monsters creep.
And, I’m afraid to close my eyes,
if you should go a-way

Brett:

(sings) “Hush, Son. Don’t you Cry”

Hush, son. Don’t you cry.
I am here beside you. You’ll not die.
With me here to keep you safe son,
you’ve no need to fear.
Close your eyes and go to sleep.
I am strong, no monsters dare to creep.
With me here to keep you safe son,
you’ve no need to fear.

When at night you close your eyes and sleep.
There’s a thousand angels at your feet.
No-things going to come between the love
that I have for you.

Brett and Gilly
