"TORCH OF PRAYER"

Verse 1
There was a woman who lost her man
When he was sent to prison a broken man,
But she never stopped loving him,
And she never once called him bad.
She taught the kids to keep faith for him
And respect their dad.

Chorus
She said she could not believe
That God would ever go away
And leave them
In her hour of despair.
She held on to the torch of prayer.

Interlude: ---

Verse 2
For many long years she carried on
Until all earthly hope was long past gone.
But she never gave up him,
And she never would show dismay.
She knew that Jesus would rescue him
From prison one day.

[Repeat Chorus]

Bridge
And when the load of care
Was more than she could bear,
She could see her Savior there,
Kneeling with her in prayer.
And when the loneliness
Would rip her heart in two,
It was His gentleness
That pulled her through.

Verse 3
Then one fine day she saw her man
Released from prison a brand new man.
Her prayers were answered that day,
And the light came shining through.
The dark clouds rolled away
And her dreams came true.

Chorus
She said she could not believe
That God would ever go away
And leave them
In her hour of despair.
She held on to the torch of prayer.
