The Family Who Prays

The Family who prays
     C#       G#
Will never be parted
Their circle in heaven unbroken shall stand
              G#        C#               G#
God will say "enter, my good faithful servants"
The family who prays

D#          G#
Never shall part

G#               C#          G#
Satan has parted fathers and mothers
G#                                     D#
Filling their hearts with his envy and hate
              G#       C#      G#
Heading their pathways down to destruction
G#                             D#      G#
Leaving their children like orphans to stray


Wars and Tornadoes are taking our loved ones
Leaving us tearful with sad aching hearts
But we shall join them over the river
For the family who prays 
Never shall part
