I’m Praying For You

Of all the words I hold so dear
When I'm happy or I'm blue,
The ones that touch me most are these,
“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.
