It Must Be So

    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,

    Will know all I think and do every day.
