World Night Prayer

World Night Prayer
Prayer poem
Lionel Derbyshire

O God with your might
Let our night be of
Peace and rest
In every corner of
Your 7 continents
And their islands
O light of God 
Bring forth thy 
Radiant morning 
Shine alike to
Every corner in
Our world
No matter where
We may stay and stray
O Lord of earth
Let rain feed
Thy grounds everywhere
Abound on your
Fields and mountains
Rivers and streams
With plenty for each farm.
Our Father of feed
Let every antelope graze
Every bird find seed
Make every carnivore eat
Give clean drink to fish
In your oceans.
Let every continental
Child eat supper at your table
Our God in faith
Council every heart
Who start with hate
To abide by your command
Bless this reader
Good GOD
Night and Day.
