Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
When I’m home or far away,
Heav’nly Father, hear me pray.
Keep me safely in thy sight;
Help me choose and do what’s right.
Thanks for home and fam’ly too,
Many things to love and do.
Thou art very good to me.
Heav’nly Father, thanks to thee.
