Before I go to bed tonight

God, hear my thankful prayer

For life and love and little things

That shimmer with your love and care.

God, hear my recollections

Of moments I’ll call gifts

Of beauty, love, and wonder,

and the poetics that uplift.

Before I go to bed tonight

I offer you this prayer

In a spirit of deep gratitude

For your presence in my life.

O God, I trust you’re with me

I sense your presence here.

I go to bed in joy and peace

And awaken in your care.
