Santa’s Prayer on Christmas Eve

Written by Dick Perue

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.
I’ll cover the world and all in one night.

“With sleigh bells 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.
I can do all these things Lord, only through you,

“I just need your blessings, 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.”
