I am sitting downstairs in our living room. Both of our kids are upstairs. Our four year old daughter, Kat, is in her room singing the chorus to Trust and Obey, which is triggering our 1 1/2 year old son, Elias, to sing in some unknown tongue across the hall. Very cool. One of the songs we taught Kat in her third year was All Praise to You, My God, This Night. The lyrics are great, and the melody is the same as Doxology. We haven't prayed through that in song for a while and she asked if we could after I read her a story.
All Praise to You, My God, This Night All praise to you my God this night, For all the blessings of the light. Keep me, O keep me, King of Kings, Beneath the shelter of your wings.
Forgive me Lord for this I pray, The wrong that I have done this day. May peace with God and neighbor be, Before I sleep restored to me.
Lord may I be at rest in you and sweetly sleep the whole night through. Refresh my strength, for your own sake, So I may serve you when I wake.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow; Praise him all creatures here below; Praise him above ye heavenly host; Praise father, Son and Holy Ghost.
