Prayers went on but it never came down
Prayers went on but it never came down
Prayers went on but it never came down

Prayers went on but it never came down
Prayers went on but it never came down
Prayers went on but it never came down

My memories of my brothers and me
Make me marvel at the way the years went by
Here we are, how'd we ever get this far?
I wonder how, and I wonder why

Then I recall what these boys often saw
When we would stop to look at mom and daddy's door
They'd bow their heads while they knelt beside their bed
And we could hear them lift our names before the Lord

Mama prayed and Jesus stood beside us
Daddy prayed and the devil had to run
God looked down, and his angels guarded through the harder days
'Cause mama prayed and daddy prayed

Prayers went on but it never came down
Prayers went on but it never came down
Prayers went on but it never came down

Now the boys are grown, raising boys of their own
In a world a little darker than before
But the prayers go on every night and every dawn
'Cause they still bow and lift our names before the lord

Mama prays and Jesus stands beside us
Daddy prays and the devil has to run
God looks down and his angels guard us through the harder days
'Cause mama prays and daddy prays

Prayers went on but it never came down
Prayers went on but it never came down
Prayers went on but it never came down

Mama prays and Jesus stands beside me
Daddy prays and the devil has to run
As God looks down and his angels guard me through the harder days
'Cause mama prays and daddy prays

And Jesus stands beside me
Mama prays and the devil has to run
God looks down and his angels guard me through the harder days
'Cause mama prays and daddy prays

Mama prays
And daddy prays
Mama prays

Prayers went on but it never came down
Prayers went on but it never came down
Prayers went on but it never came down

And daddy keeps praying
And daddy keeps praying

Prayers went on but it never came down
Prayers went on but it never came down
