I originally found this song in an old music book I came across. The words seemed good do I picked out the melody line. I liked the tune, shared it with my other sisters, and we decided to learn it. It has since blessed many people so we are glad to have found it. This song is technically a hymn, I believe, but it doesn't have a very "hymn-y" sound to it.


Go ahead and play along! I included the chords for you below:

At the (D7)close of the day, when you (G)kneel to pray
Will (D7)you remember (G)me?
I need (D7)help every day, this is (G)why I pray
Will (D7)you remember (G)me?

(C)When you pray, (Cm)will you (G)pray for me
For I (D7)need His love and His (G)care
(C)When you pray, (Cm)will you (G)pray for me
Will you (D7)whisper my name in your (G)prayer

At the close of the day, when I kneel to pray
I will remember you
You need help every day, this is why I pray
And I will remember you

When I pray, I will pray for you
For you need His love and His care
When I pray, I will pray for you
I will whisper your name in my prayer

I'm thankful for the people this (somewhat obscure) song has blessed.
