  • Machinist's Psalm

    My father had this hanging in his Tool & Mold shop and above his toolbox for many years when he worked the bench. When he passed away back in 2002, I took it to put it in my garage shop. Enjoy!!

    The lord is my Machinist;
    I shall not want.
    He secures me on his bench;
    He dips me in the cleansing solutions;
    He retempers my steel.
    He sets my parts in line so I may run true---
    For he is true.

    Yea though I am worthy to be thrown on the scrap heap
    I shall not be afraid,
    For he knows I can be restored;
    His mills and his molds they will refashion me.
    He shines my bearings;
    My motors hum.
    Surely strength and service will mark my days
    And I shall be useful to my Machinist
