Representative Text

1 When the sun all golden,
Laughs at dawn of day,
All Thy little children
Thank Thee, God, and pray,
All Thy little children
Thank Thee, God, and pray.

2 I will also praise Thee,
Jesus, Shepherd mine,
Thou wilt also feed me--
Little lamb of Thine
Thou wilt also feed me--
Little lamb of Thine.

3 Heartily I pray Thee:
Stay Thou, Lord, with me:
Guide all day my footsteps,
That I follow Thee,
Guide all day my footsteps,
That I follow Thee.

4 When Thou dwellest with me
I cannot be bad,
With my guardian angels
I can then be glad
With my guardian angels
I can then be glad.

5 When the happy sunshine
Sleeps at close of day,
Then Thy little children
Thank again and pray,
Then Thy little children
Thank again and pray.

6 And Thou bidets with them,
Jesus, Savior mine;
Waking, Lord, or sleeping,
Let each child be Thine
Waking, Lord, or sleeping,
Let each child be Thine.
