Chorus 1:
(Pray on my child),
Pray on my child,
(gotta home on high),
Yes, I’ve got a home on high.

(You know I’ve been)
Talked about sure as you’re born
(I need Jesus)
Jesus to carry me home.
(If I)
Never ever see you no more,
(I wonder will you)
Meet me on the other shore.

Pray on my child,
Pray on my child,
Yes, I’ve got a home on high.

Verse:
I remember the day, I rememer it well
(pray on just pray on)
The Lord saved me from a burning hell
(pray on just pray on)
Talk about me as much as you please
(pray on just pray on)
The more you talk, I’ll gonna be on my knees
(pray on just pray on)

Chorus 2:
(Pray on my child),
Pray on my child,
(gotta home on high),
Yes, I’ve got a home on high.

(You know I’ve been)
Talked about sure as you’re born
(I need Jesus)
Jesus will carry me home.
(If I)
Never see a smiling face,
(I wanna be)
Saved by Your marvelous grace.

Vamp:
Pray on my child,
Pray on my child.
