Good Night, Lord,

thank you for the hours that have past,

you’ve been with us.

Tonight, give us your light and your peace,

And for the pleasant morning light;

Family Prayer Before Bed


You bless us as we rest

Restore us as we sleep

You care for us as we drift off

And make our dreaming sweet.

You are the safest place

You are the God of Grace

Forgiven, loved and held by you

Is each small seed of faith.

You know our thoughts and feelings

You see our deep desires

You understand our weariness

And catch each tear we cry.

You walk beside us every day

You are a constant friend

You stay with us all through the night

On you we can depend.
