A Mother-prayer for the Hands She holds





Oh, let me never be the one
To lead your little hands to wrong
…you trust me to guide you right
Hold you, hug you warm and tight

You watch my hands clap and praise
Lift you, teach you in life’s ways
Oh God, let it never be
That you should learn wrong from me

Hold my hand then, God I pray
For if you will lead the way
Then these small hands are secure
Led not by my hands, but yours
