A Motherís Prayer
Lord, give me someone to believe,
This hope thatís in my heart;
Though most cannot hold fast, ~ I pray,
For one to share that part;
For I must hope above all others ~
I must watch and pray
Until my child is safe again
And steady in Your way.
A Motherís heart cannot give up
Or fail to furnish hope.
Encouragement must flourish most
When theyíre on a downward slope.
Donít let the clouds sweep over me ~
Donít let me fail to see
Sunshine in a life of gloom ~
Hope in his destiny.
Friends donít always laugh and run ~
Neither do they sigh,
But stand together during trials
Supporting side by side.
So...send someone, dear Lord, I pray,
To touch, to see, to know
That they believe and hold my hope
As precious to their soul.

ďAnd when he was yet a long way off, his
father saw him, and had compassion, and ran...
and fell on his neck...and kissed him.Ē
ď A friend who sticketh closer than a brotherĒ
