I’m Praying For You

Of all the words I love to hear
Whether I’m happy or feeling blue,
Those that rise above them all are,
“My friend, I’m praying for you.”

To know that you are bringing my name
To the righteous God above
Fills my heart with unspeakable peace
And warms my soul with love.

I cannot pay you any sum
To express my gratitude,
But I’ll gladly give what you’re giving me.
My friend, I’m praying for you too.
