How can I choose to sleep, O God, my God,
when the eyes of them that long for Thee
are wakeful because of their separation from Thee;
and how can I lie down to rest
whilst the souls of Thy lovers are sore vexed
in their remoteness from Thy presence?
I have committed, O my Lord,
my spirit and my entire being
into the right hand of Thy might and Thy protection,
and I lay my head on my pillow through Thy power,
and lift it up according to Thy will and Thy good pleasure.
Thou art, in truth, the Preserver, the Keeper,
the Almighty, the Most Powerful.

Kuinka voin nukkua,
oi Jumala, minun Jumalani,
kun Sinua kaipaavien silmät
valvovat sen tähden,
että ovat erossa Sinusta,
kuinka voin asettua levolle,
kun Sinua rakastavien sielut ovat tuskaisat
ollessaan etäällä Sinusta?
Oi Herrani, olen uskonut henkeni
ja koko olemukseni
Sinun mahtisi
ja suojeluksesi oikeaan käteen,
ja Sinun voimastasi
minä lasken pääni pielukselle
ja nostan sen tahtosi
ja mielisuosiosi mukaan.
Sinä olet toden totta Säilyttäjä, Vartija,
Kaikkivaltias, Kaikkein voimallisin.
