Lotu efiafi
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.
Loving Father, put away
All things wrong I’ve done to-day.
Make me gentle, true and good,
Make me love Thee as I should.

WHAT I KNOW.
1. This is east, and this is west,
Soon I’ll learn to say the rest.
This is high and this is low,
Only see how much I know.
This is narrow, and this is wide,
Something more I know beside.
2. Down, is where my feet I see;
Up, is where my head should be;
Here’s my nose, and here’s my eyes,
Don’t you think I am getting wise?
Now my eyes wide open keep,
Shut them now to go to sleep.
3. Here are my mouth and chin,
Soon to read I shall begin;
Ears I have, as you can see,
Of much use they are to me.
This, my right hand is, you see;
This, my left, one, two, three;
Over my head I raise them high,
Clap! Clap! Clap! I let them fly.

THE LORD’S PRAYER.
Our Father which art in Heaven,
Hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom
come.
Thy will be done on earth as it is in
Heaven,
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses, as we for-
give them
That trespass against us, and lead us not
into temptation
But deliver us from evil, for Thine is the
kingdom,
The power and the glory, for ever and
ever.
Amen.
