Drengurrin litli hann krypur a kned
Krossleggur hendurnar svo gud fai sed
Uss - hljott - hvad?
Drengurrin litli sem baenir fer med

Godi gud fardu ei mommu fra
Hun hattar mig og badar og er mer hja
Svo klaedir hum mig i nattfot hly
Gud blessi pabba eg gleymdi pvi

Pegar hugsa eg um pad sem gerdist i dag
Kemur upp i huga mer litid lag
Eg ma ei haetta baenina vid
Fyrirgefdu gud eg vel pig bid

Nattfotin min eru hettu med
I hettunni hofudid vel eg fel
Hun augu min hylur og ennid med
Enginn veit ad eg par er

Þakka Þér gud fyrir Godan dag
Gleymdi eg einhverju, hvad var ÞaÐ
Ég bad fyrir pabba og hugsaÐi um Þig
Ja nu man eg, GuÐ blessi mig

Drengurrin litli hann saevur nu gott
Dagurrin lidin, kommen er nott
Uss - hljott - hvad?
Drengurrin litli sem baenir fer med

    The Prayer

    The little boy is sitting on his knees
    Crosses his hands so God can see
    Hush-quiet-what?
    The little boy who saves his prayers

    Good God don't go away from mama
    She washes me and puts me to bed and stays with me
    Then she dresses me in warm pyjamas
    God bless papa I forgotten it

    When I think of what happened today
    A little song comes to mind
    I may not quit my prayer
    Forgive me God, I ask you kindly

    My pyjamas got a hood
    In my cap I hide my head
    She covers my eyes and my forehead too
    Nobody knows I'm there

    Thank you God for a good day
    Did I forget something, what was it
    I prayed for daddy and thought of you
    Yes now I remember, God bless me

    The little boy sleeps well
    The day is over , the night has come
    Hush-quiet-what?
    The little boy who saves his prayers
