A Mother’s Prayer

avery

Before you close your eyes to sleep
I have a promise still to keep
As I hold you in my arms.
I pray your little frame grows strong
And that faith takes hold while you are young;
This is my prayer for you.

Hold my hand;
I’ll teach you the Way to go.
Through the joys, through the tears,
The journey of these years,
May you trust Him ‘til the end.
May you trust Him in the end.

This world is not as it should be,
But the Savior opens eyes to see
All that’s beautiful and true.
Oh may His light fill all you are
And the jewel of wisdom crown your heart;
This is my prayer for you.

Hold my hand;
I’ll teach you the Way to go.
Through the joys, through the tears,
The journey of these years,
He is with us ‘til the end.
He is faithful ‘til the end.

You’ll travel where my arms won’t reach
As the road will rise to lead your feet
On a journey of your own.
May my mistakes not hinder you
But His grace remain and guide you through;
This is my prayer for you.

Take His hand
And go where He calls you to.
And whatever comes, seek Him
With all your heart;
This will be my prayer for you.
Father, hear my ceaseless prayer;
Oh keep her (and him) in your care.

Dún do shúil (Close Your Eyes)
Dún do shúil, a rún mo chroí
(Close your eyes, oh love of my heart)
A chuid den tsaol, ‘s a ghrá liom
(My worldly joy, my treasure)
Dún do shúil, a rún mo chroí
(Close your eyes, oh love of my heart)
Agus gheobhair feirín amárach…
(And you will get a gift tomorrow)
