Goddess bless the children
For their innocence
For their unconditional love
And for all the times they make us smile

Goddess bless the children
Who do not know right from wrong
Who do not discriminate
Who only stare out of curiosity

Goddess bless the children
For the trust they have for all things living
For the way they make the best out of life
And see everything in a good light

Goddess bless the children
Who treat life as a game
Who are not burdend with the troubles of the adult world
Who do not yet have to support the community

Goddess bless the children
Who have not yet learned the cycle of life and death
Who have yet to deal with bereavement
And learn to raise their own families

Goddess bless the children
As they strive to achieve an education
As they step forward into the world of work
And leave their childhood behind.

Goddess bless the children,
For they will inherit the earth.
