A Child’s Prayer

    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.
