Seniors: When did this childhood prayer change?

When I was a child, the bedtime prayer was Now I lay me down to sleep I pray the Lord my soul to keep If I should die before I wake I pray the Lord my soul to take When my kids were small, the prayer changed to Now I lay me down to sleep I pray the Lord my soul to keep Guide me safely through the... show more When I was a child, the bedtime prayer was
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I should die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take

When my kids were small, the prayer changed to
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
Guide me safely through the night
And wake me with the morning light

I know the original version was considered too scary for children so the wording was changed.
I want to know WHEN it changed.

Do you know?
