A Prayer for Sleep

“I am placing my soul and my body
Under your protection this night, O Gods,
Under your protection, O mighty ancestors,
Under your protection, O goodly-inclined spirits,
The Three who would defend my cause,
May they not turn Their backs upon me.

Gods, who are kind and just,
Ancestors, whose souls live still,
Spirits of strength and power,
Keep me this night from harm;
The Three who would protect me
Keep me this night and always.”

Excerpt From “By Land, Sea, and Sky.”
