South African Prayer

The man runs his fingers

Through the guitar strings

Taking in a deep breath

He opens up and sings


‘Hallelujah!’ He exclaims

‘Praise the diving Lord,’

Inhaling deeply once again

He changes the guitar’s chord


‘Thanks you, Lord Jesus,

For blessing me today

Thanks you for this career

Where I can strum my time away,


‘Thank you for the guitar

That plays quite fine a tune

It’s beautiful scarlet color

And the way it goes ‘BOOM!!


And takes my song to many a place

And makes it sound so grand

Thank you for my red guitar

That was well worth the rand.’
