I woke this morning
Without a thought, a song, a care
Until a figure there you stood
And kneeled in silent prayer.
I found my thoughts just drifting
To when once small we were –
Climbing trees so tall
Until we had a fall.
So drifting thoughts, and memories
Encourage all to care
About others so less fortunate –
That we too go down in prayer.
Please bless us all dear Father
Up high, in Heaven above –
To Love, Protect and bless us
To show we love, and care.
For everyone who silently yearns
And cries and prays –
For strength to carry on, one more day
All burdens, wants, and dreams unknown.
To those around who mock and taunt
And shed an evil glare –
Beware my friend, your turn shall come
You will not get me down.
For Love of Christ, my Saviour
Doth Protect and Love us all –
No matter what ‘er our station
What counts is ‘Love So Tall’.
