I see the Moon and the Moon sees me,
And the moon sees the one that I can't see.
God Bless the Moon and God Bless me,
And God Bless the one that I can't see.

God looked down on me from above,
And He gave you to me for me to love,
He picked you out from all the rest,
Because He knew that I'd love you the best.

I see the moon and the moon sees me
God bless the moon and God bless me
Please let the light that shines on me
Shine on the one I love

Information About I See The Moon

"I See the Moon" is an older classic lullaby that children love because of its gentle tune but also because they understand the relevance of being so far away from something they love.

The nursery rhyme is often found as the last rhyme in books for children.

There are several different variations of this song and many believe that it is a blessing.

Some have suggested that the meaning behind this rhyme is more sinister than charming such as to protect them from the dangers of the exposure to the moon and lunacy or to ward against evil creatures that walk in the light of the moon. The rhyme was aimed to teach the awareness of the moon and the prayer for a blessing from God.

Alternative Lyrics & Related Songs

You can choose to sing only the 1st verse

I see the moon,
And the moon sees me.
God Bless the moon,
And God bless me.

These 2 verses are slightly different

I see the moon
And the moon sees me
The moon sees the somebody
I would like to see

God bless the moon
And God bless me
God bless the somebody
I would like to see

We have another version here

I see the moon, the moon sees me,
Up in the arms of the old oak tree
Please let the light that shines on me,
Shine on the one I love.

Over the mountains, Over the sea,
Back where my heart is longing to be
Please let the light that shines on me,
Shine on the one I love.
