The Prayers

Truckers Prayer: Dark hill, sliding ice O cargo of faith suffice Wheel my heart to thee Miners Prayer: From heaven so far A darkness mines shafts of fear And your footsteps here Shippers Prayer: Sleep within my heart Where breaks the tumult of sea Like a voice of calm Mothers Prayer: Hold my hand always And my love when you are worn By life's feet in you Pastors Prayer: Kneeling lone I stand For all I am, at thy throne Vessel of a man Children Prayer: The light blinds our heart May our eyes see unseen things Covered by your grace A Man's Prayer: Dust fracturing light Put a rainbow in my place Blanket for the night
