The Roy Rogers Prayer

The singing and cinematic superstar Roy Rogers and his wife, Dale Evans, were devoted Christians. Below are the words to a prayer written by Roy for members of his Roy Rogers Riders Club. He asked that the prayer be said at the beginning of every meeting.

Words To The Roy Rogers Prayer

Lord, I reckon I’m not much just by myself,
I fail to do a lot of things I ought to do.
But Lord, when trails are steep and passes high,
Help me ride it straight the whole way through.

And when in the falling dusk I get that final call,
I do not care how many flowers they send,
Above all else, the happiest trail would be,
For You to say to me, “Let’s ride, My Friend.”
