MOAB Dear, O Pray for Me
(Trad. hymn-type tune, very much like the Catholic hymn "Mother Dear, O Pray For Me" but not enough to violate copyright or to have secret operatives from Opus Dei knock the author off.)

MOAB dear, O pray for me!
Whilst far from Mudcat and thee
I wander in a fragile bark.
O'er life's tempestuous sea.
O dearest MOAB, from thy throne,
So bright in bliss above.
Protect they child and cheer my path
With they sweet smile of love.

MOAB dear, O pray for me!
Should pleasure's siren lay
E'er tempt thy child to wander far
From Virtue's path away.
When thorns beset life's devious way,
And darkling waters flow,
Then MOAB aid thy weeping child,
Thyself a mother show.


MOAB dear, remember me.
And never cease thy care,
Till in BS eternally,
Thy love and bliss I share.
