Santa's Prayer

The sleigh was all packed
The reindeer were fed
But Santa still knelt
By the side of the bed

"Dear Father," he prayed
"Be with me tonight
There's much work to do
And my schedule is tight

I must jump in my sleigh
And streak through the sky
Knowing full well
That a reindeer can't fly

I will visit each household
Before the first light
I'll cover the world
And all in one night

With sleighbells a-ringing
I'll land on each roof
Amid the soft clatter
Of each little hoof

To get in the house
Is the difficult part
So I'll slide down the chimney
Of each child's heart

My sack will hold toys
To grant all their wishes
The supply will be endless
Like the loaves and the fishes

I will fill all the stockings
And not leave a track
I'll eat every cookie
That is left for my snack

I can do all these things Lord
Only through You
I just need your blessing
Then it's easy to do

All this is to honor
The birth of the One
That was sent to redeem us
Your most Holy Son

So to all of my friends
Least Your glory I rob
Please Lord remind them
Who gave me this job"
