Prayer for a Son

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.
