The Works of F. Robert Kelly


Gather round,
Let's not be rude,
To thank the Lord,
For our food.

Our daily bread,
He giveth me,
So my trust,
I put in thee.

He leadeth me,
Through greener pastures,
Pray this before thy meal,
And don't wait till after.

So I lay me,
Down to sleep,
In my heart,
The Lord I'll keep.

As in Heaven,
It will be done,
Thank you God,
For Jesus your son.

And on a Saturday,
I love the most,
Only three people,
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Tomorrow night,
When we dine again,
I'll end this prayer with,
Forever and ever and Amen.
