Lovely Lady Dressed In Blue


A few weeks ago, I purchased this prayer card. I thought it was beautiful as I was reading it. It brought me back to the innocence of childhood. Last night, or should I say early this morning while in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, in front of our Lord, he told me Archbishop Fulton Sheen used to pray it. I looked it up this morning when I got home.

Mary Dixon Thayer who wrote more than one poem for Our Lady, is the author.
This prayer-poem was popularized in the 1950s by Archbishop Fulton Sheen.

Here is the link and below, the prayer below

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.
