An Evening Prayer

If I have wounded any soul today
If I have caused one foot to go
If I have lost in my own misery
Dear Lord forgive

Forgive a sin I have confessed to Thee
Forgive my secret sins I do
Oh God watch over me and my misery
Dear Lord, help me

I Asked The Lord (He’s Only a Prayer Away)

I thank the Lord for everything
When things are going my way
He said to me I will comfort thee
And drive your cares away

He promised me I will walk thee
And drive your cares away
I did not ask for riches
He gave me wealth untold
The moon, the stars, the sun the sky
(Are there for you) to behold

I thank the lord for everything
And I count my blessings each day
He came to me when I needed Him
I only have to pray
And He’ll come to you if you ask Him to

Tell Me Why

Every time I look at someone new
Tell me why I think of you
Then you sometimes ask me by
You’re playing with love
Darling tell me why

You left me all alone
To cry over you
My heart is torn and broken
There’s nothing left to do

In my prayers, I’ll mention you
When you’re gone I feel so blue
Why can’t I have all of you
Oh, somebody, please tell me why
