A Father Speaks

Father in heaven, make me wise,
So that my gaze may never meet
A question in my children's eyes.
God, keep me always kind and sweet,
And patient, too, before their need;
Let each vexation know its place,
Let gentleness be all my creed,
Let laughter live upon my face!
A Father's day is very long,
There are so many things to do!
But never let me lose my song
Before the harvest day is through.
