Who Closes My Eyes: A Blessing At Bedtime

(From http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jewish-bedtime-prayers)

Praised are You, Adonai, our God, Ruler of the universe, who closes my eyes in sleep, my eyelids in slumber.

May it be Your will, Adonai, My God and the God of my ancestors, to lie me down in peace and then to raise me up in peace.

Let no disturbing thoughts upset me, no evil dreams nor troubling fantasies.

May my bed be complete and whole in Your sight.

Grant me light so that I do not sleep the sleep of death, for it is You who illumines and enlightens.

Praised are You, Adonai, whose majesty gives light to the universe.
