My father is wise; whenever I pray
He listens quietly to what I say.
For a prayer, when sincere, he says, must start
From a person’s thoughts deep within the heart.
He says he can tell in his own special way
What I have done by the words that I pray.
I guess if my father on earth can know
So much from my prayers, it must be so
That Heavenly Father, who hears me pray,
Must know all I think and do every day.
