Children’s Christmas Prayer


Give children a copy of this Children’s Christmas Prayer or have them make cards with it.

Gentle Jesus born this day

In a manger filled with hay.

We your Christmas children be-

Help us now your love to see.

Gentle Jesus, come today

Be our shepherd, Lord we pray.

Gentle Jesus, come this hour

Fill us with your love and power.

You fell asleep in Mary’s arm

God kept you safe from all alarm.

Gentle Jesus, come today

Be our Shepherd now we pray.
