A PRAYER FOR YOU







I SAID A PRAYER FOR YOU TONIGHT

I THOUGHT YOU MIGHT BE GLAD

CAUSE WHEN I SPOKE TO YOU

YOU SEEMED A LITTLE SAD



I ASKED GOD TO TAKE CARE OF YOU

TO HOLD YOU IN HIS ARMSTO SHIELD YOU FROM THE STORMS THAT COME

AND KEEP YOU OUT OF HARM



I TOLD HIM WHEN I LOOKED AT YOU

I SAW YOU WIPE A TEAR

AND TO PLEASE KEEP YOU

FROM THAT AWFUL THING CALLED FEAR



I PRAYED THAT HE WOULD BLESS YOU

AND FILL YOU WITH HIS PEACE

AND THAT HE WOULD TAKE FROM YOU

THAT FEELING OF UNEASE



I ASKED HIS MERCY TO BE UPON YOU

AND TO FILL YOU WITH HIS LOVE

AND ALWAYS WATCH OVER YOU

FROM HIS PLACE UP ABOVE



I PRAYED THAT HE WOULD TOUCH YOU

TO STILL YOUR TREMBLING HAND

AND THAT HE'D LET YOU KNOW

THAT HE DOES UNDERSTAND



I PLEADED HIM TO STEADY YOU

AS YOU TRAVEL DOWN LIFES ROAD

AND THAT HE WOULD LIGHTEN

YOUR VERY HEAVY LOAD



I PRAYED THAT YOU WOULD NOT WORRY

IT'S SUCH AN AWFUL WASTE

AND THAT INSTEAD HE WOULD FILL YOU

WITH HIS AMAZING GRACE



THEN I PRAYED MY PRAYER BE ANSWERED

YOU SEEMED IN SUCH NEED

AND IF YOU WILL LET HIM

GOD CAN SET YOU FREE
