my prayer lyrics – brian mcknight

i have been so far away
counting the time until today
so long i’ve waited for a chance
when i could spend some time with you
just with you, yes

you are growing so very fast
and i know i’m always the very last, oh
to help you with a problem
to kiss your hurt if you should happen to fall down
fall down

but when i’m gone
i need you here to carry on
my son i know you will be strong
like a burning flame
you’re my claim
that’s why you’ve got my name

and just to show
come what may i love you so
and there will come a day
when all that’s mine is yours
to take good care of you and yours i swear
i swear
and this is my prayer
oh, yes

when i look at you, so hard to believe
you’re the younger version of older me
i swear
i swear
and this is my prayer
oh lord, this is my prayer
