Truckers Prayer

Dear God above, bless this truck I drive,
and help me keep someone alive.
Be my mortal sight this day
on streets where little children play.
Bless my helper fast asleep,
Both our souls are yours to keep.
And my cargo, keep safe and sound,
as I drive this big rig around.
Make my judgment sound as steel,
and be my hands upon the wheel.
Bless the traveler going past,
and teach them not to go so fast.
Give me strength for every trip,
so I may care for what they ship.
And make me mindful every mile,
that life is just a little while...Amen
