My Friend The Dog

 



When God had made the earth and sky
The flowers and the trees
He then made all the animals
And all the birds and bees

And when His work was finished
Not one was quite the same
He said, "I'll walk this earth of Mine
And give each one a name"

And so He traveled land and sea
And everywhere He went
A little creature followed Him
Until his strength was spent

And when all were named upon the earth
And in the sky and sea
The little creature said "Dear Lord
There's not one left for me

The Father smiled and softly said
"I've left you till the end
I've turned my own name back to front
And called you dog, my friend"
