Lyrics

PRAYER SONG

Oh Dear Lord won’t you listen to my plea
Show me how to live in peace & serenity
Show me all the things You want your child to see
Take away those other things that only satisfy me

Lord clear my thoughts of the wrongs that I could do
Take away the Lust and the Pride and the Vengeance too
Fill my heart with gladness & love for all mankind
Take away the hate within the shadows of my mind

Lord won’t you show me how to love all the things I want to hate
& won’t You bring me closer to the ones I want to call second rate
Lord show me how to be more like your Son each day you let me live & show me how not to take, but all your love to give

Oh Dear Lord take this fiery temper of mine
Cool it down & make it more like thine
Take my angry words & fill them with your love
Change my haughty walk to the flight of a snow white dove

Lord won’t you show me how to love all the things I want to hate
& won’t You bring me closer to the ones I want to call second rate
Lord show me how to be more like your Son each day you let me live & show me how not to take, but all your love to give
& show me how not to take, but all your love to give
