300. I Am Praying for You

1 I have a Savior, He’s pleading in glory,
A dear, loving Savior, tho' earth-friends be few;
And now He is watching in tenderness o’er me,
And, O, that my Savior were your Savior, too!

Chorus:
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
I’m praying for you.

2 I have a Father; to me He has given
A hope for eternity, blessed and true;
And soon He will call me to meet Him in heaven,
But, O, that He’d let me bring you with me, too! (Chorus)

3 I have a peace; it is calm as a river,
A peace that the friends of this world never knew:
My Savior alone is its author and giver,
And O, could I know it was given for you. (Chorus)

4 When He has found you, tell others the story,
That my loving Savior is your Savior, too;
Then pray that your Savior may bring them to glory,
And prayer will be answered--’twas answered for you! (Chorus)
