    “Beloved,” Ensign, Feb. 1998, 61

    Beloved

    She crept up to her father’s knee

    To sit there quite contentedly,

    No word needing to be said.

    Laying his hand upon her head

    And looking down, he gently smiled

    Upon his treasured, trusting child.

    ’Tis thus with me approaching prayer

    Feeling Father’s spirit there.

    In quiet peace all fears are fled,

    Heart so warmed, so fully fed,

    That oh, it’s just as though He’d smiled

    On me, His blessed, joyous child!
