Debbie L. Rice: Music

Dear Jesus (Emma's Prayer)

(Performed by Emma Rice, age 9)
Lyrics and Music by Debbie L, Rice (BMI)

This sweet little song was inspired by my daughter Emma's bedtime prayers. I wrote this song when she was just turning 7, but it took me awhile to convince her to sing it for me!

Dear Jesus

Thank you for this day

Dear Jesus

Thank you for the rain

And Jesus

Thank you, for my friends

Oh Jesus

Let our friendship never end

Dear Jesus

Dear Jesus

Amen

 

Jesus please hold me as I sleep tonight

Guard me with angels till the morning light

Draw me nearer to you each day

And guide my footsteps along the way

   Guide my footsteps along

 

Dear Jesus

Help me to be good

Dear Jesus

Help me do the things I should

And Jesus

Help me to act more like you

Oh Jesus

Be proud of me in all I do

Dear Jesus

Dear Jesus

Amen.
