A Prayer for a Dear Friend
Stay close to my friend, Doris.
Hold her softly in your arms.
Your plans are far above ours.
Lord, just keep her from all harm.
She’s been a guide post for my life;
And many many others.
She’s loved dearly by one and all,
We look to her as “Mother.”
If we flounder and need strength,
She has led us to Your Word;
And sweetly, she’s taught us
Some of the best lessons ever heard.
Her life has been an example,
Through joy, and yes, in pain.
We see You in her heart.
She’s done nothing for her gain.
So Lord, if I could have my wish;
I’d like to be like her.
I know I’ll have to grow a lot;
Before this can occur.
In the meantime, may she realize;
How many lives she’s touched;
How many people love her
So very, very much.
Continue to hold and keep her;
Whether here, or whether There.
Let us keep her as long as we can.
What’s best for her, will be my prayer.
The fragrance of her life,
Will always linger on.
We thank You for loaning her to us.
She’s led hearts to be filled with Your song.
