He Was Just A Prayer Away

He Was Just A Prayer Away


Well, I thought I had strayed
so very far out in sin
with no hope of ever finding
my way back again
To the Savior I would go
but my heart wasnt there
whenever I would bow
my head down in prayer

Id wandered so far
I thought he had forsaken me
for the light of his love
I could no longer see
I was always searching
for that one perfect thing
to fill the emptiness in me
and happiness to bring

My life was traveling
on a slow downward spiral
with was no relief in sight
for my troubles and trials
As I lived for sinful things
grief overtook my life
there was no joy at all
to overshadow all the strife

He let me suffer alone
with my worldly choice
the bitterness and pain
was so evident in my voice
Years of living in sin
had taken its toll upon me
I started looking
for the one thing to set me free

I bowed down to Jesus
but didnt know what to say
but this time he just knew
for I brought my heart that day
Then I truly realized the truth
as I knelt there to pray
Jesus had always been there
He was just a prayer away
