Johnny Q. Public — As I Pray lyrics

(d. Fritz, M. Fritz, B. Thornton, O. Thornton, J. Baldridge, S. Turner)
Stay here and keep watch over me as I pray
My soul is overwhelmed, death becomes me
Watch and pray that you will not fall into temptation
The spirit is willing, but the body is weak, so weak
I fall to my face in the garden
-Chorus-
Father keep me in Your presence
Don't let me fall away
For my lack of understanding
Is impatient and demanding
And asking why this way
As I pray
My friend, do what you came here for
Then desert your faith
Pass me into the hands of sinners
With a kiss I am betrayed
I am betrayed, I am betrayed
(repeat chorus)
Life is why I have to die today
Life's why you won't take this cup away, away
I'm strong, death can't overwhelm me
As I pray
Life is why I have to die today
Life's why you won't take this cup away, away
But I'm strong, death can't overwhelm me
As I pray
