Mother taught me how to pray,
Every night I would say;
'Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
Guide me safely through the night,
And wake me with the morning light'.
She said 'give thanks every day',
Before each meal I would say:
'Thank you for the world so sweet,
Thank you for the food we eat,
Thank you for the birds that sing,
Thank you God for everything!'
We put aside our childish ways,
And forget the need to pray.
Never thanking to the Lord above,
For our blessings and His love.
There is one thing I know,
Give Him your cares and let go.
He will take your cares away,
All you have to do is pray.
We call on Him in our despair,
When in need He's always there.
We must remember to always say;
'Thank you, Lord', EVERY DAY!
