Well it's morning and I've over slept,
And I have such a long busy day.
So Father, please forgive me,
For I haven't got time to pray.
With no time to take for dinner,
I'll get a bite on my way home.
Any way there's no one there,
And I hate to eat alone.
Now at last the day is over,
And my mind I need to clear.
Then my car phone starts to ring,
And this tender voice I hear.
Slow down my son there's danger,
There'll be a wreck just up ahead,
Though you forgot me this morning,
I've chosen another instead.
I was trembling as I rounded the curve,
I could hardly believe my eye's.
For the car was so badly mangled,
I knew no one had survived.
Alcohol and blood ran together,
When I heard some one say.
You know it's really a pity,
He turned twenty-one just today.
Many people by then had gathered.
They were talking of the wreck that day.
Of how they thought it had happened,
But I didn't' hear nobody prayed.
Heaven's Just A Prayer Away
comes I ask the Lord,
To guide me through the day.
To hold me tightly in his hands,
Far from evil's way.
Yet I find
myself doing thing's,
All though I know their wrong.
So I ask the Lord's forgiveness,
Still it happens all day long.
Lord, no matter
how I try,
I keep sinning everyday.
I can feel the devil pulling me,
But you're standing in his way.
Why is it you
still love me so,
Though the devil's at my door.
Just when I think he's won,
You love me even more.
So I must live
the best I can,
And keep praying everyday.
Can't let the devil get me now,
With Heaven Just A Prayer Away.
