Father's Table Grace

As we sat at the table,
Our family's heads bowed low
My thoughts returned to childhood
And the finest man I know
He doesn't speak good English
He's just a simple man
But when he's talking to the Lord
Even a little child can understand
I was young and reckless
But the thought still comes to me
When I told my dad I felt,
I was old enough to leave.
He sat there at the table,
And a look came on his face,
And he never spoke another word,
'Til he said the table grace.
He said, "Our Gracious, Heavenly Father,
We're all gathered here today,
To give Thee thanks for blessings,
So humbly we pray.
My oldest son is leaving,
But I'm sure he knows what's best;
But just in case, would you stand by
And help him stand the test?
And if he gets with the wrong crowd,
Would you let him hold your arm?
And if he flies too high,
Would you clip his wings?
But don't let him fall too hard,
I'm sure Lord, You can handle things.
I've tried by best from day to day,
To teach him right from wrong,
An he's grown go be a fine young man,
And he's always blessed our home.
We pray Thee, Lord, for guidance,
That he won't build upon sand,
But we won't worry half as much,
If we know he's in your hands.
And, oh, oh yes, Lord, it won't be long
'Til I'll be coming home.
Don't make me wait too long.
We pray Thee, Lord, for guidance,
Please cleanse us from our sins,
So we can all be together in Heaven,
In Jesus' name, Amen."
The table was silent
As tears ran down my face,
And from that day on
I based my life,
On Father's Table Grace.
