Lyrics

Pray With Me
2015

I came upon a bad wreck, One cold December night
Wind was blowing, road was frozen, on a hard turn to the right
Inside there was a young man, near the last breath of his life
As I reached out to comfort him, He opened up his eyes
I said help is on The way son, just hold on
He said I don't think I'm gonna last that long

So would you pray with me, hold onto my hand
Grant me one last wish, Mister, if you can
You know I ain't afraid to go, but right now it's getting close

Pre-chorus
So I held his hand, and I bowed my head
And we prayed

Chorus 1
For the lost and the forgotten, for the desperate and the weak
For the addicts and the homeless, for justice, love and peace
For the soldiers in the battlefield, and the broken ones back home
We prayed that his family, would never be alone
And last of all we said a prayer for him, and one for you & me
Yeah, we prayed Oh, we prayed

V2
He said tell my wife and baby, I love them to the end
But I guess it's just all a part, of a greater plan
I can tell you one thing, I have tried to live this life
The way that He intended, with patience and with grace
Gotta thank you for your kindness, 'cause it's time to move along
White light keeps getting brighter, guess It's time to meet my God

Pre-chorus
Then he slipped away, while I held his hand and I prayed Oh, I prayed, Yeah I prayed...

Bridge
When I got home that evening, I gathered all my kin
We circled round to give our thanks, held each other's hands and prayed

Chorus2
For the lost and the forgotten for the desperate and the weak
For the addicts and the homeless, for justice, love and peace
For the soldiers in the battlefield, and the broken ones back home
We prayed his that his family would never be alone
And last of all we said a prayer for him, and one you for me, Yeah we prayed

Last of all we said a prayer for him, and one you for me, yeah, we prayed Oh, we prayed


Really nice, clean guitar sound at the top of the song. Good storytelling. Kept me listening to see how it all turned out. I really enjoyed the lyrics - very heartwarming. Sad yet uplifting at the same time. Great musicianship.

It is just a lovely feel good song and I really love it. Can't say better than that!
