Pilgrims of earth on your journey thro’ life,
Joyous in freedom, or weary with strife,
Tidings we bring you, sweet message so true:
Someone who loves you is praying for you.

Refrain

Praying for you, praying for you,
Pleading with Heaven that you may be true;
Where’er you may go, and whate’er you may do,
Someone who loves you is praying for you.

Is it a father, his form bowed with care?
Bending ’neath burdens that someone should share,
Working and hoping with heart ever true,
Patiently trusting, and praying for you.

Refrain

Is it a mother, with silvery hair?
Steps slow and feeble, the form once so fair,
Keeping love’s lamp trimmed and burning so true,
Waiting for Heaven, and praying for you.

Refrain

Is it a sister, a brother, or friend?
Sharing life’s burdens and true to the end,
Thro’ storm and sunshine with skies dark or blue,
Someone who loves you is praying for you.

Refrain

Jesus is waiting to welcome you home,
Tenderly calling tho’ far you may roam;
Come to the Savior so loving and true,
Still there is mercy and pardon for you.

Refrain
