A Prayer For The Animals
by Kristen Sharer

God bless the animals,
the lost and the stray,
the exploited, abused,
Help us not turn away.

God bless the hungry,
the thirsty and scared,
the abandoned and hopeless
and bless those who care.

God bless the hunted,
those filled with fright.
The courageous who try
to set these things right.

Bless all those which suffer
for some whim of man.
God help us all
to do what we can.

Bless their dear spirits,
when this world they leave.
For each innocent lost
teach us to grieve.

God bless our companions
in their innocent play.
May they know only happiness
All of their days.
