To whom shall I turn but to You, O Light of my life, now that the darkness and the perils of the night surround me. Open to me, O God, Your mild and loving heart in Jesus Christ and let me rest in Him, my safe refuge and strong fortress, in whom alone I may peacefully lie down to sleep and my sleep may be to me a true refreshment and blessing. My Savior, prevent every hostile power from harming me or touching me, and break asunder all darts which this night may be directed against me. Keep my body pure in chastity and holiness and let my soul, though the body rest, have its joy and comfort in You, my life and my salvation. Bless and defend all my family and my friends this night and always, and may they rest in peace. If I have an enemy, bless him also, and may his heart know Your love. Protect the government and all who are in authority. May Your mercy be great to all and mighty to save for time and eternity.
