Don't Cry for the Horses

Don't cry for the horses
That life has set free
A million white horses
forever to be

Don't cry for the horses
Now in God's hands
As they dance and they prance
To a heavenly band.

They were ours as a gift
But never to keep
As they close their eyes
Forever to sleep

Their spirits unbound
On silver wings they fly
A million white horses
Against the blue sky         Look up into heaven
You'll see them above
The horses we lost
The horses we loved

Manes and tails flowing
They gallop through time
They were never yours
They were never mine

Don't cry for the horses
They will be back someday
When our time has come
They will show us the way

Do you hear that soft nicker
Close to your ear?
Don't cry for the horses
Love the ones that are here.

The Horse Prayer


Feed me, give me water, and care for me, and when the day's

work is done, give me shelter, a clean bed and a wide stall.

Talk to me. Your voice often substitutes for the reins for me.

Be good to me and I will serve you cheerfully and love you.

Don't jerk the reins and don't raise the whip.

Don't beat or kick me when I don't understand you,

but rather give me time to understand you.

Don't consider it disobedience if I don't follow your commands.

Perhaps there is a problem with my saddle and bridle or hooves.

Check my teeth if I don't eat, maybe I have a toothache.

You know how that hurts.

Don't halter me too short and don't dock my

tail... it's my only weapon against flies and mosquitoes.

And at the end, dear master, when I am no longer any use to you,

don't let me go hungry or freeze and don't sell me.

Don't give me a master who slowly tortures me to death and lets me starve,

but rather be merciful and take care of me,

by letting me run and enjoy a warm pasture.

Let me request this of you and please don't regard it as disrespectful

if I ask it in the name of Him who was born in a stable like me.

Amen
