second verse
Bless the people that I love
and bless the one's I'm not thinking of
Bless the people that are scorn
Lord bless the children not yet born
But don't let me die ,don't let me die ,please don't let me die, tonight don't let me die.
Bless my mother and my father too ,together they became a tool . That created a creature that doth love the father son and the ones above,loves thy Father and the ones above but please don't let die ,tonight don't let me die
Another day is my request,but lay me down and let me rest . For when tomorrow I face the test ,I can praise thee father and do my best , Don't let me die ,don't let me die ,please don't let me die ,tonight don't let me die.
