Prayer for Genealogists

Lord, help me dig into the past And shift the sands of time That I might find the roots that made This family tree of mine; Lord, help me trace the ancient roads On which my fathers trod And led them through so many lands To find our present sod.

Lord, help me find an ancient book Or dusty manuscript That’s safely hidden now away In some forgotten crypt; Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts My soul when I can’t find The missing link between some name That ends the same as mine.

Curtis Woods, Tennessee Author
