Ruth's Prayer Song Lyrics

Dear God, I pray all unafraid
as we're inclined to do
I do not need a handsome man
if they're indeed like you.
I do not need one big and strong
nor yet so very tall
Nor need he be a genius, Lord
nor wealthy man at all
And let his head be high, Dear God
and let his eyes be clear
His shoulders straight what e'er his fate - what e'er his earthly sphere
and let his face have character
a ruggedness of soul
and let his whole life show, Dear God
a singleness of goal
and when he comes as he will come
with quiet eyes aglow
I'll understand that he's the man
I prayed for long ago
Dear God, I pray
for love he gave me you
[Thanks to Wayne M Joseph for lyrics]
