sat there, watching my love sleep.
And I prayed that God would keep.
Him safe and always in His care
When he's in need, Lord please be there.
send him off to work
Sometimes with no sleep at all
And I worry about his safety
And the possible death angel's call.
please keep his mind alert
As on the road he drives.
The schedule that he keeps
I know on this he thrives.
await for his return each time
He's off someplace, a living to earn
Knowing God is keeping watch
Happy that it's to me he will return.
