A Child’s Prayer

Print Share
    Father, bless the little birds
    That search for crumbs and seeds.
    Keep the kittens warm at night,
    And tend to all their needs.
    When Thy Son was very small,
    A manger cradled Him.
    Shepherds brought their little lambs
    That night in Bethlehem.
    In the stable oxen’s lowing
    Lulled the Child to sleep.
    Father, for all little ones
    A loving-watch care keep.
