God loves you, little children dear.
And guards you day and night;
You cannot drift beyond His care,
Nor stray beyond His sight.
He is not far off in the skies;
He hears you if you call.
His hand is ever close to yours,
To help you if you fall.
Be sure to know that God is Love
Each night before you sleep;
His angels watching by your side
Their constant vigil keep.
So rest in slumber, little ones;
God guards the whole night through.
Safe in His arms you need not fear.
Love watches over you.
