My daughter and I love to say this prayer at night before bed. I grew up Catholic but had never heard it until recently. I think no matter what religion you are this prayer can help us moms relate to Mary and to picture Jesus as a baby loved by his mother. Read it and see what you think.
Lovely Lady Dressed in Blue
Lovely Lady dressed in blue— Teach me how to pray!
God was just your little boy, Tell me what to say!
Did you lift Him up, sometimes,
Gently on your knee?
Did you sing to Him the way Mother does to me?
Did you hold his hand at night?
Did you ever try Telling stories of the world? Oh! And did He cry?
Do you really think He cares
If I tell Him things—- Little things that happen?
And do the angels wings make a noise?
And can He hear Me if I speak low?
Does He understand me now? Tell me for you know?
Lovely Lady dressed in blue—
Teach me how to pray!
God was just your little boy,
And you know the way.
