Perhaps the day would not have been so long,
The skies would not seemed so gray,
If on my knees in humble prayer
I had begun the day.
Perhaps the fight would not have been so hand,
Prepared, I might have faced the fray,
If I had been alone with HIM
Upon my knees, to pray
Perhaps, I might have cheered a broken heart
Or helped a wand'rer on the way,
If I had asked to be a light
To some dark soul today.
I would remember just the pleasant things,
the harsh words that I meant to say
I would forget, If I had prayed
When i began the day
