Loretta Lynn Lyrics

"When I Hear My Children Pray - Ernest Ray" lyrics


(L. Waldrop)

(Someday I'll be strong enough)
(To make that church bells ring)
(And when my voice grows steady)
(I can help the choir sing.)

(Somehow I can be usefull)
(So put me to the test)
(I know I can't do very much)
(But Lord I'll do my best.)

Last night just at bed time
I looked in upon my son
And the picture I saw as I stood there
Was surely a blessed one.

Proudly I watched and listened
To all he tried to say
'Cause it makes my heart just burst with pride
When I hear my children pray.

And he said dear Lord I'm just a little boy
And I don't know how to pray
But so many of your people
Has slowly turned away.

Well, maybe there's something I can do
To help in your great plan
I know I can't do very much
But I'll do the best I can.

Couldn't I light the little candles
Or maybe sweep the pews
I'll do anything dear Lord
Just as long as it's for you.

Why, can I open up the doors
Or dust your sacred stand
I know I can do something
If you'll just hold my hand.

Yes, proudly I stood and listened
To all he tried to say
And it makes my heart just burst with pride
When I hear my children pray.

(I know I can't do very much)
(But Lord I'll do my best...)
