C G7
They were pray—ing
C
Praying for someone like me

F C
Not long ago I was thinking of home
G7 C
And I wondered if momma was there all alone
F C
I thought I’d drop by as I had before
G7 C
But the sound from within made me stop at the door

G7
She was pray-ing a sound that the world seldom hears
C
Pray-ing her words were pleading and clear
F C
The sound of her voice as she spoke my name
F C G7
Brought tears to my eyes my heart filled with shame
C
She was pray—ing praying for someone like me

F C
Walking one night I felt so alone
G7 C
My heart was so heavy from the trouble I’ve known
F C
I hadn’t noticed a church that was near
G7 C
Till the sound from within seem to fill the air

G7
They were pray-ing a sound that the world seldom hears
C
Pray-ing the children that God loves so dear
F C
Outside in the darkness I could not see
F C G7
But I could picture them down on their knees
C
Pray—ing praying for someone like me
