This is a prayer from childhood. I don't know the origins. I hope you enjoy.
THANK YOU GOD FOR ANOTHER DAY
Thank you Lord for another day,
A chance to learn, a chance to play.
Now, as I lay me down to sleep,
I pray to God my soul to keep.
Please guard me Jesus through the night,
And keep me safe till morning light.
But if I should die before I wake,
I pray to God my soul to take.
And should I live for other days,
I pray God that you will guide my ways.
