"Prayer" lyrics - RAY WYLIE HUBBARD


Sometimes I puzzle 'bout the spirits
And why fear and trembling's always 'round
Seems the last time God pitched in down here
Was when Pharaoh and his army was drowned

When I seek to unravel the sacred
I get perplexed and overwhelmed
I'm not in tune with the ecclesiastical
Can't get a fix on the ethereal ground

When all is lost and we have no courage
[?] ain't gonna get us through
The old folks say "Well now all we can do is pray"
Well perhaps that's the best thing we can do

I'm not profound or perceptive
Most time I don't know what I say
It's likely God don't need to hear my prayers
I just need to hear me praying
