Holy Father, Guardian of the Night,
Shepherd of the Lost Flock,
You who have watched over all the hours of this day,
Stay with me tonight.
Bring me peace and restful sleep.
Bless my dreams with serenity.
Holy Spirit, protect my mind from those
who would cause me trouble.
Protect my soul from those who seek
To burrow deep while my guard is down.
Blessed Father, surround me with Angels
To both guide my nocturnal travels
and to stand guard
over my sleeping form.
Dearest brother, True Son of the Father,
hold my hand while I enter the other worlds
and stay closely by my side.
Give me strength to battle the demons
who seek to disturb my peace.
Arm me with Your Sword and Shield
so that even in my dreams ~
I may remember All
that You have taught me and
All that You have promised.
Thank you for Your protection. Thank you for your love.
Most glorious and powerful Lord of All,
