I said a prayer

for you today


I said a prayer for you today

And God must have heard,

I felt the answer in my heart

Although he spoke no word,

I didn’t ask for wealth or fame,

I knew you wouldn’t mind,

I asked Him to send treasures

Of a far more lasting kind.

I asked that He’d be near you

at the start of each day.

To grant you health and

blessings, and friends

to share your way.

I asked for happiness for you,

In all things great and small,

But it was His loving care

I prayed for most of all

I said a prayer for you today.


A private family service will be held on Wednesday, February 12th, 2003. PIERCY’S FUNERAL HOME have been entrusted with arrangements.
