Now to bed I do retire,
Rest to find and sweet repose;
Lord! my weary eyes aspire
Unto Thee before they close.

Thou, O Father, ever good,
Take my thanks for all Thy love,
For Thy care, for drink and food,
Which Thou gav’st me from above

Pardon ev’ry sinful deed,
Ev’ry evil I have done;
Let my tender age now plead
To Thy mercy, Holy One!

Let my childhood’s innocence
Last through life, unbroken, pure;
That, when’er thou call’s! me hence,
My salvation shall be sure.

“Evening Prayer for Children” is one of thirty prayers appearing in Rabbi Moritz Mayer’s collection of tehinot, Hours of Devotion (1866), of uncertain provenance and which he may have written. –Aharon Varady
