 Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

Now I lay me down to sleep.

Pray the Lord my soul to keep.

Dear Lord, protect me through the night,

wake me with the morning light

 

Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray the Lord my soul to keep

If you should come before I wake

I pray the Lord my soul to take

 

Bob Carlisle
Butterfly Kisses


There's two things I know for sure.
She was sent here from heaven, 
and sheís daddyís little girl.
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night,
She talks to Jesus, and I close my eyes.
And I thank God for all the joy in my life, 
But most of all...
Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer.

Stickiní little white flowers all up in her hair.
"Walk beside the pony daddy, itís my first ride."
"I know the cake looks funny, daddy, but I sure tried."

Oh, with all that Iíve done wrong, 
I must have done something right.
To deserve a hug every morning, 
and butterfly kisses at night.

Sweet sixteen today.
Sheís looking like her momma a little more every day.
One part woman, the other part girl.
To perfume and makeup, from ribbons and curls.
Trying her wings in a great big world. But I remember...

Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer.
Stickiní little white flowers all up in her hair.
"You know how much I love you daddy, but if you donít mind,
Iím only going to kiss you on cheek this time."
With all that Iíve done wrong, I must have done something right.
To deserve a hug every morning, and butterfly kisses at night.

All the precise time.
Like the wind, the years go by.
Precious butterfly, spread your wings and fly.


Sheíll change her name today.
Sheíll make a promise, and Iíll give her away.
Standing in the bride room just staring at her.
She asked me what Iím thinking, and I said, "Iím not sure,
I just feel like Iím losing my baby girl."
Then she leaned over... and gave me...

Butterfly kisses, with her mama there.
Stickiní little white flowers all up in her hair.
"Walk me down the aisle daddy, itís just about time."
"Does my wedding gown look pretty daddy?" 
"Daddy donít cry."

With all that Iíve done wrong,
 I must have done something right.
To deserve a hug every morning, and butterfly kisses.
I couldnít ask God for more, man, this is what love is.
I know Iíve gotta let her go, but Iíll always remember.
Every hug in the morning, and butterfly kisses...
