A Prayer for Some Old Bums New Start

If I die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul he take
If for me morning does not come
I pray for life to some old bum
A new beginning
A new start
Another chance to do his part
If for his old ways, he shall return
For my life back, I shall yearn

    Interesting one..I saw a program on TV about a documentary of secretly helping a homeless person..This crew put 100,000 dollars in a brief case a put it where this homeless person dump dived all the time to get bottles and aluminum cans, etc. that he could sell for money..It was an interesting program..His family tried to help him by telling him he needed to buy him a home(mobile home) so he would have a place to live but he just blew the money in a few short months..Sara
