A Child's Evening Prayer

Rating: 2.7
Ere on my bed my limbs I lay,
God grant me grace my prayers to say:
O God! preserve my mother dear
In strength and health for many a year;
And, O! preserve my father too,
And may I pay him reverence due;
And may I my best thoughts employ
To be my parents' hope and joy;
And, O! preserve my brothers both
From evil doings and from sloth,
And may we always love each other,

I love this. It is so pure like a child's prayer and the off rhyme shows the innocent mistake that a child can make. I love this as a general evening prayer even for me to say.
