A little child reaches up;
For his mothers hold.
She puts him in her lap;
Her arms around him fold.
Comforted, “I love you mommy.”
She says, “I love you too.”
“Now it’s time for beddie bye.”
“You know what you must do.”
He kneels beside his little bed.
“Mommy, you come down too.”
He folds His little hands;
He Prays, until He’s through.
He climbs into His bed.
She tucks Him in real tight.
“Sweet Dreams, my little man.”
Then kisses him good night.
In peace now, from her love;
He drifts into sweet sleep.
Mama humbly bows her knees;
And silently she weeps.
“Lord, I ask you bless my boy;
To grow, and be like you.”
“Give me, the grace to teach him,”
“How to live and love you too.”
“Spread angel’s wings about him.”
“Protect him from this world.”
“Keep him in your perfect plan;
Living by your Holy Sword.” (Bible)
Are you like a child in need?
Is Jesus Christ your Lord?
Do you need deliverance;
From the trappings of this world?
Is it hard for you to sleep?
Does your heart long for relief?
Father God will comfort you;
And bless with perfect peace.
Just as mother, does to child;
The Father holds us tight.
He guides us through the shadows;
And protects us in the night.
He sends His angels near;
To catch our every tear.
And when we need a sense of love;
We sense His presence there.
“I love you Lord.” You’ll say.
“I love you too.” You’ll hear.
Then in rest you'll drift in sleep;
Your soul quiet, from all fear.
“Sweet dreams, my child, sweet dreams;”
“Rest now in my loving you.”
“I am your Father, you are my child;
"I will never- ever leave you;.”
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee.
Lord, help me to trust you more each day.
Lord, help me to love you more I pray.
Lord, lead me, to walk in your holy way.
Lord, strengthen my faith, help me not stray.
Lord, hide me behind the cross today.
