How long has it been since you talked with the Lord
And told him your heart's hidden secrets
How long since you prayed how long since you stayed
On your knees till the light shone through.

How long has it been since your mind felt at ease
How long since your heart knew no burden
Can you call him your friend how long has it been
Since you knew that he cared for you.

--- Instrumental ---

How long has it been since you knelt by your bed
And prayed to the Lord up in heaven
How long since you knew that he'd asnewer you
And would keep you the long night through.

How long has it been since you woke with the dawn
And felt that life was worth living
Can you call him your friend how long has it been
Since you knew that he cared for you.

Do you know that he cares for you...
