Lord, I pray to Thee for this precious child,
And to all Your mighty angels;
Please keep her safe in this temporal world,
And shield her from its evils.
Lord, take this child in Your arms,
Protect her day and night;
Comfort her when she's afraid,
Hold her close and tight.
If she should fall, Lord, pick her up,
Keep her determined and strong;
Show her the way to be hopeful and brave,
Even when life seems all wrong.
As she matures in her spirit and years,
Remind her she's never alone;
Show her Your light and all things bright,
When she feels she has no one to lean on.
And finally, Lord, give her good health,
Keep her free from illness and pain;
May her heart be blessed with compassion and love,
Never accepting Your gifts in vain. Amen.
