Oh Let Us Pray


Oh Father, oh Father
Come and take us by our hands
As we pray to you dear Father
For a cleansing across our land

Let us pray for the sick
And those that are old
Cling to us dear Father
We still need You, to hold

Pray for the poor
Even the beggars on the street
Help to guide them along
May they find something to eat

Let's pray for our soldiers
Who have stood up to fight
Leaving behind their families
Just to help protect our rights

Let us pray for the blind
May they finally get to see
May these prayers reach across the lands
And set many burdens free

Let's pray for love and friendship
May they spread like a wild fire
May we all love with Your passion
And burn with a true desire

so pray with us Oh Father
As we pass the hands of time
And help all hearts to heal
Starting with some friends of mine

Good-night? ah! no; the hour is ill
Which severs those it should unite;
Let us remain together still,
Then it will be good night.
