A Child's Hymn

God, make my life, a little light,
Within the world to glow
A little flame that burns bright
Wherever I may go.

God, make my life a little flower,
That gives joy to all
Content to bloom
Although its place be small.

God, make-my life a little song,
That comforts the sad
That helps others to be strong,
And makes the, singer glad.

God, make my life a little hymn
Of tenderness and praise
Of faith that never goes dim
In all Your wondrous ways.

A Child's Prayer

At night I kneel by mother’s knee
To thank you God for your care
Thank you for all the gifts
That made the day so fair.

I thank You for the nighttime
For the stars and moonlight too
For my parents
And friends so kind and true.

Now I pray my soul You to keep
For sleep all through the night
Watch over me
Till morning brings its light.
