O MY God and Father, I praise and humbly thank you for so much of your infinite goodness it has pleased you to watch for me while I slept, preserving me from so many kinds of dangers, where unto this miserable life is subject. Lord, make me to remember your other great and innumerable benefits, that I may not be found unthankful unto your majesty for the same; beseeching you for your great mercy to continue your fatherly care which you have of me, unto the time that I shall sleep the blessed sleep which they enjoy that sleep in peace; through Jesus Christ your dear Son, who in the unity of the Holy Ghost lives and reigns with you, one God eternally. Amen.
