A Farmer’s Prayer

As the full moon passes, through the dark night sky

The farmer thanks the lord, for the day that’s gone by

He pats his old dog, who’s no longer a pup

Then stares into heaven, as the stars wake up

Dear Lord he says you put rain on my crops

The mortgage is paid, and the tractor didn’t stop

My family isn’t hungry and the cattle have been fed

So tonight, thanks to you, I’ll sleep well in my bed

Thank you lord for all that you gave

Especially your son, who came here to save

If I wake in the morning, to a new days begin

And I’ll roll out of bed, off to work again

But if I die in my sleep, and they bury me below

I’ll wake up in heaven, where there’s no crops to grow
