"When I Hear My Children Pray" lyrics

When I Hear My Children Pray

(With Ernest Ray)

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 useful
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 blessing 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
