 I pray the Spirit my soul to keep
Introduction

 I pray the Spirit my soul to take
Father, forgive them for they know
not what they are doing.
 Luke 23:33-34

 I pray the Spirit to show the way
Truly I tell you, today you will be
with me in Paradise.
Luke 23:39-43

 I pray the Spirit let wash my tears
Woman, here is your son! ...
Here is your mother!
 
John: 19:26-27

 I pray the Spirit to let it stand
My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me? 
Mark: 15:33-34 and Matthew: 27:46

 I pray the Spirit let shine the light
I am thirsty.  John: 19:28-29

 I pray the Spirit itís not too late
It is finished.  John: 19: 30

 I pray the Spirit my soul to care
Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.

Prayer

Rebecca Campbell

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Spirit my soul to keep
and if I die before I wake
I pray the Spirit my soul to take

but if I wake for one more day
I pray the Spirit to show the way
and if I walk this earth for years
I pray the Spirit let wash my tears

and if I lend a helping hand
I pray the Spirit to let it stand
and if I fail to do whatís right
I pray the Spirit let shine the light

and if I find a path thatís straight
I pray the Spirit itís not too late
and if I die still halfway there
I pray the Spirit my soul to care
