PRAYERS FOR CHILDREN
Little Jesus, I Love Thee
Well dost Thou know, Little Jesus
How Thy sweet friendship I crave.
Teach me, the lowest of creatures,
How to be patient and brave.
Teach my proud heart, Little Jesus
All Thou wouldst wish it to be.
How to scorn life's false ambitions,
How to live solely for Thee.
Let me be childlike, Sweet Jesus,
Teach me Thine Own "little ways"
Humble, obedient and docile
Each breath a pure act f praise.
Let every action, Sweet Jesus
Prove Thy control over me,
Let all the hearts that I treasure,
Find their true frienship in Thee.
