Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Fold thy hands in prayer, my child,
Gently bow thine head;
To our glorious God in heaven
Children's prayers are said;
And the Angels pure and fair
Bow before His presence there.

2 Close thine eyes in prayer, my child,
Close thy roving eyes;
Wandering looks would fill thine heart
With all vanities.
Kneeling to the King of kings,
Would thou gaze on earthly things?

3 Guard thine heart in prayer, my child,
Closely guard thine heart,
Lest with holy, earnest thoughts
Bad ones have their part:
When we to our Father pray
Let us mean the things we say.
