Evening Prayer
Language: English 
Lord we pray that you will keep,
watch upon us while we sleep.
Guard us all from harm and pain,
Till the day comes round aqain. 

Bless all those whom we love best,
Father, Mother and the rest, 
Don't forget Aunt Ann and Granny, 
darling uncle Fred and nursey Nanny,
make us good, obedient boys,
don't let baby break our toys. 

Help us all to do what's right, 
Thanks kind God, amen Good night.
