A Child's Prayer

by Teresa Jennings

This very brief and simple song is just a reminder to all of us of what's important. And what we should all be thankful for.

Beginning with an optional solo, the melody is easy for even a young student to learn. By measure 13, all of your singers can join in and stay in till the end of the song when the optional solo returns.

How and when you use this lovely little piece is up to you. We think it might make a good closing of the day tune. Or week. Or year. Any setting where gratitude is emphasized would be appropriate.

If you do use it in a performance, you might find that pajama costumes would be very effective, especially if your performers are very young.
