Sometimes my prayer is just a thought -

I needn't speak a word;

Sometimes a dream gives me a thought -

and somehow my 'dream' is heard.


Sometimes when I stop thinking, what will I do? -

the answer comes out of the blue.

God knows just what is best for me

and shows me what to do.


Sometimes it's a road I wouldn't have travelled

if He hadn't shown me the way.

His answers come in mysterious ways

when I open my heart and pray.
