Judge’s Prayer



Oh God, I’m only human
And I sure ain’t perfect
So I do misjudge the defendants
That comes before me in court.
Help me, oh, God, to make sure
That justice has been served fairly,
To make the guilty ones pay
And the innocent ones go free.
Give me the wisdom, knowledge and guidance
In my decisions for every case
That goes before me;
Because, God, you’re the only one
Except for the defendant who knows for sure
If he or she is guilty or not guilty.
