Oh Lord in Heaven up above
Let my dog know that he is loved,
When he’s in the house all alone
Watch over him until I come home.

Then I can take over the task
But there’s more that I must ask,
Although I’m there by his side
Protect him anyway with all your might.

For I get lost in a busy day
Not realizing that he wants to play,
Please make sure he understands
That him and I are still best friends.

Give him health and many years
Shield his heart from frown and tears,
And on the day when he must go
Lord take him with you to your home.
