May I lie down with God,
and may God lie down with me.
May I not lie with evil, nor evil lie with me.
Brigid’s girdle round me,
Mary’s mantle beneath me,
Blessed Michael, hold my hand,
and make my peace with the Son of Grace.
If any evil thing pursue me,
may the Son of God protect me for a year from this night,
and this night itself, and ever and always.
