A Bedtime Prayer

By

A Bedtime Prayer

Now I’ll lay her down to sleep
And pray the Lord her soul He’ll keep
So when the night turns into day
Once again she’ll romp and play

She’ll track some dirt across my floor
With sticky fingers reach for more
She’ll cry and then she’ll laugh so sweet
That’s what makes my life complete

Then the day will be night again
With tired eyes she’ll wonder in
She’ll climb upon my lap to sleep
While I pray the Lord her soul He’ll keep

Written for Kimmy, 1983
by her mother, Lona Walker
