My Simple Prayer - Poem by James Casey

My Simple Prayer

Thank you Lord, for one more dawn
That this old man can gaze upon
This old and weathered tree that stands
To mark the greatness of your hands!

Lend to me that gift of voice once more
To sing praise and joy to my saviour
Then spread your word of loving grace
So that others may enfold, embrace.

These words of praise I write this day
Are written for you, I am honored to say
My gratitude is infinite, for I belong
Let all that agree, with me, rejoice in song.

You know that I wll falter, tend to fail
Yet it is my hope that Your love prevail
Please bless all mankind upon this earth
Fill them all with love, give them a rebirth

So that we may find our sight and see
The appearance, the display, the majesty
Of another breathtaking dawn, I can say:
'' Thank you Lord, for one more glorious day. '
