A Child's Supplication!
O Maker of this universe! ! ! ! !
Sought in silence, prose and verse!
Teach me Lord to sing Thy Praise
On strings of these my humble lays
O Knower of all black and white
Pour on us Thy heaven's light
Thou knowst our deep folds and layers
Unto Thee I send my prayers
Bless the sick with healthy life
Help the ones who are in strife
Grow us strong to serve the nation
with progress, peace and education
Ignorance sweeps us with its might
Help us remove it by our light
Leave us not our Gracious God
Save us from all evils odd
Grace our minds with blessings Thine
We wish to stay forever Thine
Desert us not, O worthy Lord
The path is thorny and so broad
Our hands are seeking for Thy mercy
Bless us withThy boundless mercy
Bless my parents and my teachers
Friends and siblings, all Thy creatures!
Ameen! ! !
