And as they work beneath the clay,
With heads bowed down these miners pray,
That God will hear them up above
And send them safely to the ones they love.
Now if this cannot come to pass,
And he must pay the price at last.
The miner leaves his last demand:
Keep my child safe above the land.
"A Coal Miner's Prayer"
