A DOG FOR JESUS
I wish someone had given Jesus a dog as loyal and loving as mine
To sleep by His manger and gaze in his eyes and adore Him for being divine
As our Lord grew to manhood His faithful dog would have followed him through each day
while He preached to the crowds and healed the sick and knelt in the garden to pray.
It is sad to remember that Christ went away to face death alone and apart
with no tender dog following close behind
to comfort its Masters heart.
And when Jesus rose on that Easter morn
How Happy He would have been
as His dog kissed His hands and barked its delite for the One who died for all men.
Well, the Lord has a dog now, I just sent Him the old pal so dear to me
And I smile through my tears on this first day alone knowing they're in eternity.
Day after day, the whole day through
wherever my road inclined,
Four feet said "I am coming with you"
and trotted along behind.
