When Children Pray

God listens when the children pray

Author: Berde Rooney
Tune: GREEN HILL (Peace)
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 God listens when the children pray,
For once a young boy came
And knelt within the quiet wood
To pray in Jesus' name.

2 His prayer was answered and his hear
Was very glad that day
To know that from his heavenly home
God hears when children pray.
