What does every good child say,
When it wakes at peep of day?
“Jesus, blessed Saviour, keep me
Safe from harm, I humbly pray,”
Jesus answers, “I’ll be near thee,
I’ll protect thee, I will cheer thee,
When thou prayest I will hear thee;
I will keep thee safe this day.”
Chorus:
Jesus, blessed Saviour, keep us safe from harm, I humbly pray.

What does every good child say,
When at school on Sabbath day?
“Jesus, blessed Saviour, teach me,
How a little child should pray,”
Jesus answers, “While thou’rt pleading,
I for thee am interceding,
God thy infant prayer is heeding,
He will teach thee how to pray.”
Chorus:
What does every good child say,
When the daylight fades away?
“Jesus Blessed Saviour keep me,
While I sleep this night I pray.”
Jesus answers, “While thou’rt sleeping,
Little child, my watch I’m keeping:
Till the morning light comes peeping,
By thy bedside I will stay.”
Chorus:
