Livin' in a cold, cold world
Sometimes it gets hard and you feel like
You can't make it out

When I was just a little girl
My momma told me, "Don't you worry
Hold your head and wear a smile"

"'Cuz you're gonna have days
When you feel like things ain't goin' your way
Just take a moment and pray"

Where would I be? Where would I be?
Where would I be if You ain't never heard a prayer from me?
What would I do? What would I do?
What would I do if I didn't have You to be there for me?

And I'm so thankful for
All the things You've done
Showing me right from wrong
And cleansin' my soul

When all my friends
Turned their back on me
You made me see
You're the only one I need

Where would I be? Where would I be?
Where would I be if You ain't never heard a prayer from me?
What would I do? What would I do?
What would I do if I didn't have You to be there for me?

Where would I be? Where would I be?
Where would I be if You ain't never heard a prayer from me?
What would I do? What would I do?
What would I do if I didn't have You to be there for me?

Way in the midnight hour, I called Your name
'Cuz I knew You were watchin' over me
And I don't know just where I'd be
If somebody never said a prayer for me

Where would I be? Where would I be?
Where would I be if You ain't never heard a prayer from me?
What would I do? What would I do?
What would I do if I didn't have You to be there for me?

Where would I be? Where would I be?
Where would I be if You ain't never heard a prayer from me?
What would I do? What would I do?
What would I do if I didn't have You to be there for me?

I just wanna thank You, Lord
I, I just wanna thank You, Lord
I, I just wanna thank You, Lord
I, I just wanna thank You, Lord

I, I just wanna thank You, Lord
I, I just wanna thank You, Lord
I, I just wanna thank You, Lord
I, I just wanna thank You, Lord

Where would I be? Where would I be?
Where would I be if You ain't never heard a prayer from me?
What would I do? What would I do?
What would I do if I didn't have You to be there for me?
