I Thank Thee, Dear Father
I thank thee, dear Father in heaven above,
For they goodness and mercy, thy kindness and love.
I thank thee for home, friends, and parents so dear,
And for ev'ry blessing that I enjoy here.
Help me to be good, kind and gentle today,
And mind what my father and mother shall say.
In the dear name of Jesus, so loving and mild,
I ask thee to bless me and keep my thy child.
(Teacher reviews steps of prayer and asks if students have any phrases that they couldn't say in their recent prayers.)
