The Moon Shines Down

From the lost manuscripts of children’s author, Margaret Wise Brown, this bedtime story is based on the classic New England Sampler prayer, God Bless the Moon and God Bless Me.

I see the Moon and the Moon sees me
As it sees the children across the sea
In Australia and Norway and Italy
Africa, Japan, and Germany

The poetic verse of the text shows a child praying for God’s blessing on children in different parts of the world and themselves as the moon shines down on them all.
