    Family Prayer

    Reverently

    1. Let us gather in a circle

    And kneel in fam’ly prayer

    To thank our Heav’nly Father

    For the blessings we all share.

    2. Let us thank him for our mealtime,

    For clothes we daily wear,

    For parents, home, and fam’ly,

    For his kind and loving care.

    3. Oh, may we always serve him,

    In thought and action too,

    And humbly kneel at prayer-time

    As so many fam’lies do.
