A Child's Prayer Before the Christmas Crib

Baby on the soft warm hay,
I have a birthday gift for you.
I am wrapping up this whole, long day,
All filled with good things I can do.

I'll help my parents in the house
and try hard to obey.
I'll do a kind deed for my friend,
and I'll be cheerful when I play.

I'll clean my plate at every meal.
I'll put my toys and games away.
I'll go to bed without a fuss
and kneel down silently to pray.

Baby on the soft warm hay,
Wax baby Jesus on a net from the Zulu people, our creche in the Cor Jesu Chapel.
How do you like my gift today?
