At night I kneel by mother's knee,

To thank God for His care;

I thank Him for all good gifts,

That made the day so fair.


I thank Him for the night-time,

For stars and moonlight, too;

I thank Him for my parents,

And friends so kind and true.


Then I say, "Now I lay me down

To sleep" all through the night;

And ask Him to watch over me,

Till morning brings its light.
