Mickey Newbury - "A Fathers Prayer" lyrics

Bless this day that it might be
Free from all uncertainty
Free from tears and fears and doubt
Peace is all that matters

And bless this house Lord while it stands
For this old house is in Your Hands
And when it falls then bless the ground
For the ground is all that truly matters

Bless this child with trusting eyes
That he may grow to realize
Right from wrong and truth from lies
For the truth is all that matters

And bless this woman here at my side
When I need a place to hide
I crawl into her loving eyes
Where I find a place to sleep
Love is all that matters
