    While we sit at our table my family heads bowed low
    My thoughts return to childhood to the finest guy I know
    He doesn't speak good English he's just a simple man
    But when he talks to the Lord even a little child can understand

    I was awful young and reckless the thought still comes to me
    When I told dad I felt that I was old enough to leave
    He sat there at the table I looked him on his face
    He never spoke another word till he said the table grace
    He said our graceous heavenly father we all gathered here today

    To give these things of blessings so humbly we pray
    My oldest son is leaving and I guess he knows what's best
    But just in case would you stand by and help him stand the test

    And Lord he's awful neglectful about church on Sunday morn
    And if he gets with a wrong crowd would you let him hold your arm
    And if he flies too high would you clip his wings

    But don't let him fall too hard I'm sure that you can hand the things
    Oh I've tried my best from day to day to teach him right from wrong
    He's grown to be a fine young man Lord but you've always blessed our home
    I just pray for understanding that he won't build upon the sand

    But I won't worry half as much Lord if I know he's in your hands
    And oh yeah Lord it won't be long till I'll be coming home
    We'll have some long talks you and I don't make me wait too long
    We beg dear Lord for guidance please cleanse us from our sins

    So we all can meet in heaven in Jesus name amen
    The table was silent as tears went down my face
    From that day on I base my life on father's table grace
