Authentic Supplication Number 24.

If the Messenger of Allah ¬†wanted to sleep he would say Bi’ismika ‘allahumma ‘amootu wa ‘ahya (43) and when he awakened from his sleep he used to say: Al-hamdu lil-lahi ‘allathee ‘ahyana ba`da ma ‘amatana, wa ‘ilayhin-nushooru (44).

(43) It is in your name O’ my ‘ilah that I die and I live.
(44) All praise be to Allah Who has caused us life after He had caused us death, and to Him is the return.

Agreed upon by Bukhari and Muslim, and Al-Albani included it in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #24.
