Sweet Lord I Pray

That you will answer
My prayers today
That I will seek
You thru
In all my life
In all I do

I think of you each day
And wish I could see
Your face
The joy you gave to me
Is lost away from me

Oh help oh lord I pray
And lead him to the way
Forever there will be
An ever lasting eternity

Forgive him where he has failed
And change his life
And wish him well
And never let him
Crazy to tell

Doesn't he know
I wish him well
That he will open his eyes
And then sat down and cry

For laughter is no fien
When you hurt someone
In denying not there it stays
Still you find a better way

Forgive him of his sins
And let him have a
New life to begin
I am old and not grey
But in this life
I will stay
To help my son
Find his way

The law of the Lord is perfect
Converting the soul
The testimony of the Lord is sure
Making wise the simple
The statutes of the Lord is pure
Enlightening the eyes
The fear of the Lord is clean
Enduring for ever
