A Child's Prayer

Poem By George Savige

A little child
Besides his bed
With folded hands
Beneath his head

Considers all
He’d done today
Then softly he
Begins to pray

Dear Jesus bless
My mum and dad
And help me not
To be too bad

I’m sorry that
I scratched the car
With that big heavy
Iron bar

It wasn’t all
My fault you know
But someone called,
I had to go.

I told no one,
I knew I should.
I know that
Wasn’t really good

But even when
I’m really dumb
I love my Daddy
And my Mum.

Bless my Mum and
Dad and me
And thank you
For a lovely tea

But dearest Jesus,
While you’re there
Please, will you bless
My Teddy bear?

You cannot buy your happiness,
'Cause happiness is free.
Don't you know, or can't you guess,
It's there for you and me.

Sea Sickness

We went out fishing in a boat,
Charlie, Wal and me.
As it was cold, we wore a coat,
Fishing on the sea.

The Rainbow's Gold

They told me with each Rainbow
I'd find a pot of gold,
And I had never proved it,
But that's what I was told.

Steam Trains

We used to sit besides the track,
Watching trains go clickety clack.
We'd count each carriage passing by,
And smell the smoke that filled the sky.

Only Believe

Only believe
That Jesus can save.
Only believe
The Promise he gave.


I listened to the music
And the notes they left behind
While the violins were playing
In the dance hall of my mind.
