To our Lady

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?
 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.
