~ An Hour With
As if the years had not come and gone,
I can still see our happy home,
It’s evening now; the days work done,
To read the Bible and Pray, the time had come.
We gather ‘round Daddy, a child on his knee,
Open Bible in hand, we all try to see,
From where we would read in the Bible tonight,
But it did not matter; anywhere’s alright.
We would be taught and taught very well,
Look toward Heaven, shun things of Hell,
After reading the Bible, we’d fall on our knees,
Pray to God above and ask him to Please.
Keep us all safe from harm through the night,
And again as we wake with the morning light,
Before breakfast, we’re on our knees to Pray,
And thank God for giving us another day.
Oh! How I long for times such as these,
To hear MY DADDY Pray, as I sat on his knee,
But even though these times I can not regain,
Deep in my heart his teachings remain.
Thank you DEAR DADDY,
for teaching me as you did!!!
