A Genealogists Prayer
By Curtis Woods


Lord, help me dig into the past
And shift the sands of time
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine

Lord, help me trace the ancient roads
On which my fathers trod
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.

Lord, help me find and ancient book
Or dusty manuscript
That's safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt;

Lord, let it bridge the gape that haunts
My soul when I can't find
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine.
