Prisoner's Prayer
recorded by Hank Snow
written by Ted Daffan and Donald Nash
 
G                      D7
In my cell so dark and dreary
                              G
The touch of God's hand I can feel
                     C
Asking Him to please forgive me
  G        D7              G
Before Him pleading I will kneel
 
                          D7
I know someday beyond the sunset
                           G
He'll call my name to make amends
                           C
Till that day I'll keep on praying
    G        D7            G
And ask that He forgive my sins
 
 
Recitation:
Must I spend my life without a goal
In the staleness of this baron hole
Must the ceiling always be my sky
Is this the way my youth must die
 
 
Could fate no better world arrange
Than gloomy walls that never change
No stars or moon to shine on high
Where the sun is such a stranger
 
 
Mind and soul are both in danger
With not to do but set inside
Is this the way my youth must die
This bare existence is not life
 
 
I'd rather live in pain and strife
My heart is tired but cannot cry
Is this the way my youth must die
My life is merely night and day
 
 
With food brought in upon a tray
To let me live but not to try
Is this the way my youth must die
Ahh God give me the open air
 
Give me hope and even care
Let me live God and let me try
Cause this is no way for youth to die
 
G                         D7
I know someday beyond the sunset
                           G
He'll call my name to make amends
                           C
Till that day I'll keep on praying
    G        D7            G
And ask that He forgive my sins
