#245: I Am Praying for You

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


I have a Savior – He’s pleading in glory,

A dear, loving Savior, tho earthfriends  be few;

And now He is watching in tenderness o’er me –

But O that my Savior were your Saior too.


For you I am praying,

For you I am praying,

For you I am praying,

I’m praying for you.


I have a Father – to me He has given

A hope for eternity, blessed and true;

And soon He wil call me to meet Him in heaven –

But O that He’d let me bring you with me too!



I have a robe – ‘tis resplendent in whiteness –

Awaiting in glory my wondering view;

O when I receive it all shining in brightness,

Dear friend, could I see you receiving one too!



When Christ has found you, tell others the story,

That my loving Savior is your Savior too;

Then pray that your Savior will bring them to glory,

And prayer will be answered – ‘twas answered for you!
