TEXT

Night time, quiet time, 
Loved ones gather at day's end.
I hold them close, I help them know
That God will always be their friend.
Then just before I say good night,
My little one kneels by my chair.
I close my eyes, I dim the lights,
And listen to this simple prayer.:

Heavenly Father, are you really there? 
And do you hear and answer every child's prayer? 
Some say that heaven is far a-way. 
But I feel it close a-round me as I pray. 
Heavenly Father, I remember now. 
Some-thing that Jesus told disciples long a-go: 
"Suffer the children to come to me." 
Father, in prayer I'm coming now to thee.

Pray, he is there; Speak, he is listening. 
You are his child; His love now surrounds you. 
He hears your prayer; He loves the children. 
Of such is the kingdom, the kingdom of heav'n.
