    NOW I LAY ME DOWN TO SLEEP

    Now I lay me down to sleep
    I pray you Lord, my soul to keep
    If I should die before I wake
    I pray you Lord, my soul to take
    As I dream while I take my rest
    I pray you Lord to keep me blessed
    Should I reach the limits of mortality
    Take me with you Lord, to eternity
    Now off to slumber I go
    To dream of mountains high, and valleys low
    Should I not awaken in lifes familiar place
    Take me to see you face to face
    Watch me Lord, as I doze in your sight
    Bless me as I take my rest tonight
    Now I lay me down to sleep
    I pray you Lord, my soul to keep

    Destee,...

    I have to say wow,... its great to be missed. And I wanted to tell you that I'm proud of what you've done since the days when I took your customer service calls at affinity hosting (c. 1997 - 1998)
    You are really talented.

    Poeticdelight,... thanx for the read :)
