Saturday 25 April

The song today is another in Gary Barlow’s “crooner” series. This time Gary sings with Katherine Jenkins. The song is simply known as “The Prayer”. 

It’s a request for peace, guidance and kindness.  The lyrics are spiritual, and ask the subject of the song to “watch us where we go” and “help us to be wise”.

I pray you’ll be our eyes, and watch us where we go
And help us to be wise, in times when we don’t know
Let this be our prayer, when we lose our way
Lead us to a place, guide us with your grace
To a place where we’ll be safe, when shadows fill our day
Lead us to a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe.
