A Daddy’s Prayer for His Son

Standing over a cradle

Looking into his face

Lord I pray you will give him

A full measure of your grace

Make him quick to use his ears

And slow to use his tongue

Lord if it be Your will

Save him when he is young

Let him grow to serve you

And love you more each day

Make him strong and mighty

But caring in every way

I pray he will preach your gospel

To proclaim liberty to the bound

Attentive to your voice

When he hears its precious sound

As I gazed into his cradle

Into my coffin he’ll look at me someday

And as tears roll down his face

I hope that he can truly say

Ever since I can remember

And now that I am grown

My dad was more like Jesus

Than any man I’ve ever known.
