I kneel right down to say my prayer

And offer up my every care.

But first I thank for all I hold

And do not stop till each is told:

My eyes, my hands, my walking feet;

The friends I always love to greet;

My home and loving family;

Each of my blessings plain to see!

And then I pray for what I need:

For intellect to help me read;

For kind, sweet words among my friends;

For proper health and rain God sends.

I kneel right down to say my prayer

And realize that God is there.

He listens to my every word,

And this I know: my prayer is heard!
