Closing prayer for class

We really want to thank you Lord for all we've done today.
Thank you for the fun times, the laughter and the play.
Thank you for the meal times, the writing and the drawing,
For each and every child that's here, all the learning and the growing.
Come take us by your loving hand, and hold us through the night,
And when the morning sunshine comes, please fill us with your light.
