Dear Father I pray you stay close to me
During all my life ..always I need Thee
To lead my way ...to clear the road
To be my shelter and help carry the load

You've never left, I know You are there
Yet sometimes the hardships are hard to bear
I look to You for strength from above
You come to my rescue ...showing Your great love

Not always in this life is pain removed,
For this life is short, soon we will be made new
So let us enjoy the splendor of this world
The beauty You have given us; now unfurled

The birds singing brightly, and flying free
The mountains and laurels; all creations of Thee
The sun and the moon, and all light did you send
And ever so lightly touches of the moving wind

So let us not dwell on pain here we acquire
But more to Your beauty and creations admire
For life after death, no comparison there can be
The joys of all heaven, our trophy to be.

Scripture:
(KJV)
Psalms 33: 6 ~ 8
By the word of the Lord were the heavens made;
and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it
stood fast.
