We give thanks for the darkness of the
night where lies the world of dreams. Guide
us closer to our dreams so that we may be
nourished by them. Give us good dreams
and memory of them so that we may carry
their poetry and mystery into our daily lives.
Grant us deep and restful sleep that we
may wake refreshed with strength enough to
renew a world grown tired.
We give thanks for the inspiration of stars,
the dignity of the moon and the lullabies of
crickets and frogs.
Let us restore the night and reclaim it as
a sactuary of peace, where silence shall be
music to our hearts and darkness shall
throw light upon our souls. Good night.
