Marty Robbins - A Christmas Prayer Lyrics




(Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)

Dear Lord, I want to thank you
For what you've done for me
For all these many blessings
In a world that's caught in grief and misery
No matter where I wander
I'm always in your sight
And so, my friends, to you my love
Upon this Christmas night

If all my prayers aren't answered
Then, Lord, I'll understand
There's others more deserving
Others, Lord, who need a helping hand
I pray you'll guide and keep me
Ever near the light
And so my deepest thanks, my Lord
Upon this Christmas night
