Grandpa, Say a Prayer ...

Grandpa,
Say a prayer for nana
'Cause you are her shining knight;
The one who God created to stand by her day and night.
And now that God has chosen to take you home to Him
Say a prayer for nana until she sees your face again.

And Grandpa,
Say a prayer for mama
'Cause although she seems so strong;
Her heart is soft and tender and is sad to have you gone.
I know that she will carry on and smile once again
But say a prayer for mama while her heart is on the mend.

And Grandpa,
Say a prayer for your sons and daughters
'Cause they still need your sound advice;
Pray your wisdom and your strength will carry on throughout their lives.
And on those days when the loss is just a little hard to stand
Say a prayer for your sons and daughters and gently hold their hand.

And Grandpa,
Say a prayer for your children
The ones who are left here still;
For you have left a legacy that others could only dream to fill.
Many precious gifts all perfectly designed
Just look at all those treasures that your life has left behind.

And Grandpa,
Say a prayer until we see you
'Cause our hearts may feel some pain;
Even as the days are new, some emptiness will remain.
So while we persevere and do our work faithfully down here
Say a prayer for all of us - the ones who hold you dear.
