010I Am Praying for YouIra D. Sankey, 190411.11.12.11. with Refrain

1I have a Savior, He’s pleading in glory,
A dear, loving Savior, though earth friends be few;
And now He is watching in tenderness o’er me,
But oh, that my Savior were your Savior too!
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
I’m praying for you.
2I have a Father: to me He has given
A hope for eternity blessèd and true:
And soon He will call me to meet Him in heaven,
But oh, that He’d let me bring you with me too!
3I have a robe; ’tis resplendent in whiteness,
Awaiting in glory my wondering view;
Oh, when I receive it, all shining in brightness,
Dear friend, could I see you receiving one too!
4I 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 oh, could I know it was given to you!
5When Jesus 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!
John17:24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
