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.

—By Mary Dixon Thayer, who wrote more than one poem for Our Lady.
Archbishop Fulton Sheen popularized this prayer-poem in the 1950s.
