A prayer, just what would I say?
Speak of those whore around
Who pray for you everyday

Everybody know we are just people
In the people's hands
Bless the soul of our man
That we might understand

All of my life
I've longed to be close
Nearer to someone
I thought would need me the most

Have no fear, your God is near
Just say a little prayer

Nothin' beats a failure but I try
With this one life to die for
I wanna satisfy with love

Just what would I do?
Allow your mind to improve
And keep yourself very, very clear
All can be forgiven

Now there's still hope for the living
Say a little prayer

Nothin' beats a failure but I try
With this one life to die for
I wanna satisfy

A prayer, just what would I say?
Speak of those who need your love
And who pray for you everyday

Everybody knows we are just people
In the people's hands
So keep a little prayer

Everybody knows we are just people
In the people's hands
So say a little prayer

(Our Father)
Say a little prayer
(Who art in Heaven)
Say a little prayer
(Hallowed be Thy name, in kingdom come)
Yeah, yeah
(Thy will be done, amen)
