Say a Prayer Lyrics

Childhood runs across the meadow, taken in the night
Told that you'll be working in the city for a while

It 's peering from the windows it's leaning in the doorway
Flickering like a candle lying on the floor

Say a prayer, say a prayer in the night
Say a prayer, say a prayer in the night

Childhood working with your papa chained to you mom
This is all you live for
Debts that linger on

Bearing all the glory, bearing all the weight
Knowledge of such hardship
At such a tender age

Say a prayer

Song Description:
"The work of International Justice Mission really opened my eyes to a number of injustices, especially to children, around the world. The first verse was inspired by Elizabeth, a young woman forced to work in a brothel when she was 15 years old who prayed every night in spite of being mocked by the other girls. She was rescued by IJM. If she can pray in that situation, how much more can I pray for children like her caught in that kind of oppression. The second verse was inspired by a man whose sons were being groomed to be slaves in the brick kiln where he and his wife were enslaved. He could not bear to see his sons enslaved, and so, with great courage, worked with IJM to bring about their release, and the release of everyone illegally detained at the kiln. I could barely get through the song, as I was thinking about C.S. Lewis' thoughts in The Weight of Glory. What was heavier, bearing the weight of those bricks, or bearing the weight of Glory as image bearers of God?" - Sara Groves
