          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,
          But, oh, 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.

          I have a Father; to me He has given,
          A hope for eternity, blessed and true;
          And soon will He call me to meet Him in Heaven,
          But, oh, that He'd let me bring you with me too!

            Chorus
            For you I am praying,
            For you I am praying,
            For you I am praying,
            I'm praying for you.

          I 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!

            Chorus
            For you I am praying,
            For you I am praying,
            For you I am praying,
            I'm praying for you.

          When Jesus has found you, tell others the story,
          That your loving Savior is their Savior, too;
          Then pray that your Savior may bring them to glory,
          And prayer will be answered 'twas answered for you!

            Chorus
            For you I am praying,
            For you I am praying,
            For you I am praying,
            I'm praying for you.
