Hi all.. this is a bit urgent . Last week, my friend sadly lost her mum to cancer .. and she wants to recite a song at her funeral which her mum used to sing to her.

It is the 'Now I lay me down to sleep' song.. which I have Googled.. BUT the version she wants to recite has something about '40 Angels' in it??? (Which I can find any mention of..) Can anyone shed any light? Or could it be something her mum invented for her?

Please help if you can..

Thanks, SJ x

I found this if it's any help?

NOW I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
Four corners to my bed,
Four angels there aspread:
Two to foot and two to head,
And four to carry me when I'm dead.
If any danger come to me,
Sweet Jesus Christ, deliver me.
And if I die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.

How about:
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray to God my soul to keep.
Thaer are four corners to my bed,
there are 4 angels at my head.
One to watch and one to pray
And two to bear my soul away.

That's what I remember anyway.
Good luck
