Oh, Bury Me Not lyrics
[Recitation:] Lord, I've never lived where churches
grow I loved creation better as it stood That day you
finished it so long ago And looked upon your work and
called it good I know that others find you in the light
That sifted down through tinted window panes And yet
I seem to feel you near tonight In this dim,
quiet starlight on the plains I thank you,
Lord, that I'm placed so well That you've made my freedom
so complete That I'm no slave to whistle,
clock or bell Nor weak eyed prisoner of Waller Street
Just let me live my life as I've begun And give me
work that's open to the sky Make me a partner of the
wind and sun And I won't ask a life that's soft or
high Let me be easy on the man that's down Let me be
square and generous with all I'm careless sometimes,
Lord, when I'm in town But never let them say I'm mean
or small Make me as big and open as the plains And
honest as the horse between my knees Clean as a wind
that blows behind the rains Free as the hawk that circles
down the breeze Forgive me,
Lord, if sometimes I forget You know about the reasons
that are hid You understand the things that gall or
fret Well, you knew me better than my mother did Just
keep an eye on all that's done or said And right me

sometimes when I turn aside And guide me on that long,
dim trail ahead That stretched upward toward the great divide

Oh, bury me not on the lone prairie These words came
low and mournfully From the pallid lips of a youth
who lay On his dying bed at the close of day

Oh, bury me not and his voice failed there But we took
no heed to his dying prayer In a shallow grave just
six by three We buried him there on the lone prairie.
