Adams, Oleta - Just Before I Go To Sleep Lyrics




Just before I go to sleep
I say a prayer that God will keep
The two that heals join together
Safe and more in love than ever

Help us find shelter in each other's arms
Where love's a fire that keeps us warm
And when we're laden down with care
We're gonna take it up in prayer

Teach the right words to say
Words that will help us find our way
And when we are blinded by pride and greed
Open our eyes, take control, take the lead

Help us to laugh and to cry
To kiss away the tears from each other's eyes
We'll be patient and we'll be kind
And love each other just the way you designed

Hearts may be broken down to the core
Help us forgive without keeping score
With you here to guide so great and divine
Our love will continue to shine

Help us to laugh and to cry
To kiss away the tears from each other's eyes
And we'll be patient and we'll be kind
And love each other just the way that you designed

    Just before I go to sleep
    I say a prayer that God will keep
    The two that heals join together
    Safe and more in love than ever
    Help us find shelter in each other's arms
    Where love's a fire that keeps us warm
    And when we're laden down with care
    We're gonna take it up in prayer
    Teach us the right words to say
    Words that will help us find our way
    And when we are blinded by pride and greed
    Open our eyes, take control, take the lead
    Help us to laugh and to cry
    To kiss away the tears from each other's eyes
    We'll be patient and we'll be kind
    And love each other just the way that you designed
    Hearts may be broken down to the core
    Help us forgive without keeping score
    With you here to guide us so great and divine
    Our love will continue to shine
    Help us to laugh and to cry
    To kiss away the tears from each other's eyes
    And we'll be patient and we'll be kind
    And love each other just the way that you designed

  7. Dr. Janis McCarroll-Johnson

    Oh my God what a beautiful song. I thought I had heard all of her songs. How did they hide this song? Such a beautiful prayer to the Lord for people who love one another. Thank you Oleta.

    Janis McCarroll-Johnson I walked down the aisle to this song in 2002. My wedding was absolutely enchanting. One night I was playing CD’s searching for a song to walk to, and out of all the CD’s I had listen to, without luck, this was the only one left. I had given up hope and then, Before I Go To Sleep came on. After the first minute I knew it was the one. The words were mind blowing. Happy you appreciated it as much as I did & still do.
