Four corners of my bed
Four angels over head
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
Bless this bed I lay upon
Four corners to my bed,
Four angels ’round my head,
One to watch, one to pray,
And two to bear my soul away.
I go by sea, I go by land,
The Lord made me with his right hand,
If any danger come to me,
Sweet Jesus Christ, deliver me.
For he’s the branch and I’m the flower,
Pray God send me a happy hour,
And if I die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.
I lay my head on our Lady’s knee
Jesus come this night to me
Heart of Joseph I adore thee
Heart of Mary I implore thee
Heart of Jesus pure and just
In those three hearts I place my trust.
Teach me to always to say what’s true.
Be willing in each task I do.
Help me to be good each day,
and lead me in thy holy way.
I pray whatever wrongs I’ve done,
You will forgive me every one.
Be near me when I wake again, and
Bless all of those I love. Amen.
