Pray For Me

     Just a little thought (and request) on a Sunday morning. I hope that all is well in your little corner of the world and that you will read and enjoy the following.

     Oh, and please don’t get the wrong idea from it, it is a hypothetical situation and in no way represents my state of (physical) health.. 

     May God bless us all,

Jake.

PRAY FOR ME

When you go to church

on Sunday,

and you’re prayin’

for those who sin,

pray for me, pray for me,

and pray for me again.

*

‘Cause it seems to me

the sinful things,

they’ve always tasted

oh, so fine.

So pray for me, pray for me,

then pray just one more time.

*

And I know these things

will hurt me,

they’ll hurt me

bad someday.

So pray for me, pray for me,

pray they don’t take my soul away.

*

So when you go to church

on Sunday,

and you’re prayin’

for those who sin,

pray for me, pray for me,

and pray for me again.

*

Of all the pleasures

of this world,

you know I’ve had

my share.

Pray for me, pray for me,

then say, another prayer.

*

Yes, I’ve tasted

of the fruits,

growin’ on

forbidden trees.

Pray for me, pray for me,

pray these eyes may someday see.

*

Now, they say my time’s

upon me,

and my Maker

I’ll soon meet.

Pray for me, pray for me,

pray He’ll have for me, a seat.

*

So when you go to church

on Sunday,

and you’re prayin’

for those who sin.

Pray for me, pray for me,

and pray again, He’ll take me in!
