A Child's Prayer by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir

Night time, quiet time,
Loved ones gather at day's end.
I hold them close, I help them know
That God will always be their friend.
Then just before I say goodnight
My little ones kneel by my chair.
I close my eyes, I dim the lights,
And listen to this simple prayer:

Heavenly Father, are you really there?
And do you here and answer ev're child's prayer?
Some say that heaven is far away,
But I feel is close around me as I pray.

Heavenly Father I remeber now
Something that Jesus told disiples long ago:
"Suffer the children to come to me."
Father, in prayer I'm coming now to thee.

Pray, He is there. Speak, He is list'ning.
You are His child, His love now surround you.
He hears your prayer, He loves the children.
Of such is the kingdom, the Kingdom of heav'n.

Heavenly Father, are you really there?
He hears and answers every child's prayer.
Please hear my prayer.
