as i pray lyrics – johnny q public

(d. fritz, m. fritz, b. th*rnton, o. th*rnton, j. baldridge, s. turner)
stay here and keep watch over me as i pray
my soul is overwhelmed, death becomes me
watch and pray that you will not fall into temptation
the spirit is willing, but the body is weak, so weak
i fall to my face in the garden
-chorus-
father keep me in your presence
don’t let me fall away
for my lack of understanding
is impatient and demanding
and asking why this way
as i pray
my friend, do what you came here for
then desert your faith
p*ss me into the hands of sinners
with a kiss i am betrayed
i am betrayed, i am betrayed
(repeat chorus)
life is why i have to die today
life’s why you won’t take this cup away, away
i’m strong, death can’t overwhelm me
as i pray
life is why i have to die today
life’s why you won’t take this cup away, away
but i’m strong, death can’t overwhelm me
as i pray
