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 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 a 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
