Bless My Car

In life’s hustle and bustle it’s a reminder of the words penned a number of years ago – a prayer for my car – and refined in 2005.

To the tune of “Bless This House, O Lord, I Pray”.

Bless My Car, O Lord

By Roberta N. Tuthill

Bless my car, O Lord, I pray, Keep it safe by night and day,

Bless its battery and hood, Keep its starter working good,

Bless its fenders, wheels and tank, Thank you, Lord, it need no crank,

Bless its headlights, tail lights too, And its mirrors that give rear view.


Bless its doors that swing about, to get in and then get out,

Bless its shock absorbers, springs, Crankcase, plugs and piston rings,

Bless its universal joints, Bless its valves and breaker points,

Bless its filters, oil and air, All four tires and yes, the spare.


Bless its windshield and its wiper, Bless its muffler and tail pipes,

Bless its heater and its fan, Its radiator and its pan,

Bless its brakes and engine too, Give long life for it’s not new,

Bless the windows shining bright, Letting in your heavenly light,

Keep it safe by night and day, And I’ll thank you Lord, alway.

Do you know that Jesus loves you, doesn’t want you to be sad?

No matter what your circumstances, He can make you glad!

Simply ask Him to come in your heart and wash away all sin;

Then to a great adventure you will surely enter in!


— New Lyrics by Roberta N. Tuthill, Copyright 6/25/2004

Sing to the tune of Yellow Rose of Texas.

Yellow-pink rose

To me, these few words comprise God’s Good News

in condensed form. The Gospel in a nutshell!


Returning from Rose Hills Memorial Park, Whittier CA, a week after

Evelyn Wyatt’s Farewell Service, where I had lingered for a time of

gratitude for the privilege of serving such a dedicated handmaiden of

the Lord, I stopped at a neighborhood store before returning to the

home from which she had departed just two weeks earlier.

Before I could pick up my purse, the words above sang to The Yellow

Rose of Texas tune, and I quickly jotted them down, lest they flee as

quickly as they had come; the Gospel in a nutshell!

Psalm 34:1-4 / song

I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

My soul shall make her boast in the Lord; the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad,

O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.

I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
