Lyrics
A prayer
Just what would I say
Think of those around need you
Who pray for you every day

Everybody knows
We are just people
In the people's hands
Bless the soul of a man
That we might understand

All of my life
I long to be close
Nearer to someone
Someone would need me most
Yes, say a little prayer

Nothing beats a failure but a try
With this one life to die
I want to satisfy

With love
Just what would I do
Allow your mind to improve
And keep yourself very cool

All could be forgiven
There is hope for the living
Say a little prayer

Nothing beats a failure but a try
With this one life to die
I want to satisfy

A prayer
Just what would I say
Think of those who need you
Who pray for you every day

(Repeat 2X)
Everybody knows
We are just people
In the people's hands
Say a little prayer
Say a little prayer
Say a little prayer

Every day
