A New Father’s Prayer

I pray for you my son tonightFather protecting child
that you always walk in God’s light

That your young ears will listen well
as of Christ’s blessed hope I tell

and weave His story through all life
to you, young son of my dear wife.

I pray for you my son tonight,
God’s protection and His keen sight.

Your young eyes will see of God’s love,
your fresh heart will give thanks above,

Your small hands will lift up in praise,
and all your life it’s song will raise,

To God above it’s notes so clear,
that none below can help but hear.

I pray for you my son tonight,
that you always walk in God’s light.
