Simple Lessons

In this crazy world
Let us return this day
When we were a child
Things we learned to say

When we cross the street
Or decision to appraise
Walking hand in hand
and to look both ways

These simple courtesies
Always keep in mind
Saying please and thank you
To be humble and kind

Think of the other first
Let Jesus’ voice speak through
Loving one another
Just as I’ve loved you

Bless Your Child

Bless Your beloved child
One that You love true
Let us pray as one
He’s precious to me too

In day ahead before him
With challenges to face
Surround in Your Presence
Safe in warm embrace

A soul of innocence
One faithful to You
A lamb amongst the wolves
Be His shepherd true

In home of returning
A story let him share
Let us praise, rejoicing
Of this answered prayer

Bless You My Child

Bless you my child
A voice soft and clear
Wrapped in its fragrance
Of love so aware

How sweet is its sound
May it ring true
Letting it flow
All throughout you

One that’s beloved
Of way seek to find
Blessings bestowed
Leads the life divine

In days path ahead
May heart be aware
Opportunities way
Of blessings to share

Sweet Child of Mine

Oh sweet child of mine
Gift of the divine
Trust you to our Lord’s embrace
And His true love you’ll find

Pray for hunger of the soul
Desire of your heart
Follow in the way prepared
Joy in gifts impart

In the cloud of darkest night
Do not soul despair
Roots of faith to grow of deep
To know He’s always there

Eye be of compassion true
Heart outpouring love
Mercy blessed be quick to share
View be from above

Know within the deep of soul
That I love you dear
Bound forever in our Lord
And in this prayer we share
