The Home Above
We feel so sad when those we love
Are called to live in "The Home Above"-

But they have but gone to prepare the way
And we'll meet them again some happy day-

For God has told us that nothing can sever
A life He created to live on forever-

So let God's promise soften our sorrow
and give us new strength for a brighter tomorrow.

Cowboy's Prayer

Oh, Lord, I've never lived where churches grow;
I've loved creation better as it stood
That day You finished it so long ago,
And looked upon Your work and called it good.
Just let me live my life as I've begun!
And give me work that's open to the sky;
Make me a partner of the wind and sun,
And I won't ask a life that's soft and high.
Make me as big and open as the plains,
As honest as the horse between my knees,
Clean as the wind that blows behind the rains,
Free as the hawk that circles down the breeze.
Just keep an eye on all that's done and said;
Just right me sometime when I turn aside,
And guide me on the long dim trail ahead
That stretches upward toward the Great Divide.
