his heart had failed him so terribly
the operation was very dangerous
I felt so helpless I thought of God.
I prayed my father would not die
I prayed that he would be just fine
I prayed to god to see him through
I prayed and I believed in you.
When I was struck by harsh reality
it opened up my eyes so I could see
while I was sitting there in the waiting room
there was only one thing I could do.
Please God forgive my sins, please let my father live
please God hear my prayers.
I prayed and he did not die
I prayed and now he is just fine
I prayed and God saw him through
I prayed and I believe in you.
