    "A Father’s Prayer"

    Dear God, my little boy of three
    Has said his nightly prayer to Thee;
    Before his eyes were closed in sleep,
    He asked that Thou his soul would keep.
    And I, still kneeling at his bed,
    My hand upon his tousled head
    Do ask, with deep humility,
    That Thou, dear Lord, remember me.
    Make me, kind Lord, a worthy Dad,
    That I may lead this little lad
    In pathways ever fair & bright,
    That I may keep his steps aright.
    O God, his trust may never be
    Destroyed or even marred by me.
    So, for the simple things he prayed
    With childish voice so unafraid,
    I, trembling, ask the same from Thee.
    Dear Lord, kind Lord, remember me.
