1 I need the prayers of those I love,
I need the sweet, sweet feeling,
That suit for me is urged above,
Whene’er dear friends are kneeling.
Amid life’s cares I need the prayers,
I need the prayers of those I love:
Amid life’s cares I need the prayers,
I need the prayers of those I love.

2 Of those I love the prayers I need,
They know my wants and ailings;
They know the way to intercede
For all my faults and failings.
On bended knee remember me;
Of those I love the prayers I need:
On bended knee remember me;
Of those I love the prayers I need.

3 Of those I love I need the prayers,
Whene’er God’s throne addressing;
‘Twill keep my feet from sins and snares,
‘Twill break in showers of blessing.
Who love me yet, oh, ne’er forget,
Of those I love I need the prayers:
Who love me yet, oh, ne’er forget,
Of those I love I need the prayers.
