Dear God, we thank you for the night, And for the pleasant morning light, For rest and food and loving care, And all that makes the world so fair, Help us to do the things we should, To be kind to others and good In all we do and all we say To grow more loving every day.

Dear God, we give you this day, All of our work, and all of our play, All that we do, and all that we say, Now before I run to play, Let me not forget to pray, To God who kept me through the night

And woke me with the morning light, Lord, be with me all today, ln my work and in my play.
