Lyrics

Verse- Try as I might

           Life never quite

           Turned out all right

Verse- No matter how

           How hard I pressed

           Though I did my best

           My dreams always slipped out of sight

Lift- I believed in my soul

        It was me in control

        I held on to a fool’s fantasy

       Without God in my heart

        Ev’rything fell apart

        With all my sense of reality

Chorus- Till I prayed (I prayed)

             Man, I prayed (I prayed)

             Feel no shame when I say

             I owe Him every day

             Of my life in this world God has made

Release- I got down on my knees and prayed

Verse- Life’s been a climb

           I never found time

           To trust in His glory and might

Verse- Until the pain

           Pain of regret

           Made me change my mindset

           And I finally did see the light

Lift- All my days He’d fulfill

        If I’d surrender my will

        He’d been waiting there so patiently

        Hoping I’d come to see

        It was not up to me

        To rule over my own destiny

Chrous- When I prayed (I prayed)        

               Man, I prayed (I prayed)             .      

                I asked for His help                    .        

              And grace for myself                  .                      

               And mercy for sinners like me….      

Chorus- Hey, I prayed (I prayed)

             I surely prayed (I prayed)

             Feel no shame when I say

             I do it every day

             Of my life in this world God has made

Release- I got down on my knees and prayed
