Lovely Lady Dressed in Blue

The prayer/poem entitled "Lovely Lady Dressed in Blue" was penned by Mary Dixon Thayer in 1926.  It was popularized by Archbishop Fulton Sheen in the 1950's.  It was a favorite prayer of Fr. William Pentis C.O., founder of our Camp.


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?
O! 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.
