"A Prayer For Genealogists"

Lord, help me dig into the past,
And sift 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 dust manuscript,
That's safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt.


Lord, let it bridge the gaps that haunts
My soul when I can't find,
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine.
