May God always keep and guide
This precious, young, undying soul.
May his heart always be set
To do what’s right instead of wrong
And may God be his Defender
Against the Enemy strong.
May he know the blood of Jesus
Can save him from his sins
And see how much he needs it
To cleanse him deep within.
May his days be often joyful,
But when sorrows cloud his day
Grant him grace to continue
And say, “The Lord leads me this way”.
May he never lose his child-faith,
Not despise his mother’s love
Neither forget his father’s words
But always seek his Maker above.
May he look over the hills unto the Lord–
All help from Him expect.
And may we always be a family
In this world and the next.
