Children's prayers

Children's prayers
by Mary Baker Eddy 
From "Poems" in Miscellaneous Writings


To the Little Children

Father-Mother God,
Loving me, —
Guard me when I sleep;
Guide my little feet
Up to Thee.

To the Big Children

Father-Mother good, lovingly 
Thee I seek, — 
Patient, meek, In the way
Thou hast, — 
Be it slow or fast, 
Up to Thee.
