A Prayer to End the Day

Another prayer from "Sounds of the Eternal: A Celtic Psalter" by J. Philip Newell:

It is in sleeping that my body is refreshed
It is in letting go that my soul is revived
It is in dying that I am born anew.
Bless to my my sleeping, O God,
bless to me my letting go,
bless to me my dying,
that tonight I may enter your stillness,
that tomorrow I may awake renewed,
that in the end I may be fully alive to you.
Tonight, tomorrow and always, O God,
may I be truly alive to you.
