Keith Sweat — I Pray The Lord My Soul 2 Keep lyrics

yes yes lord, I prais ya name

Vers.1
It's been 4 dayz
since I've seen the light
I just can't believe
I chose this life
I never thought my life
would fade away in shadows
in one more day
is my last tomorrow
I will blink my last blink, breath my last breth
then in my casket, my body will rest
I sittin in the bed writtn this song
but wat goog will it do
if my bodies gon
I got shot 5 times
right through the chest
but i aint worried
cuz this is only the flesh
the hospital said
I wont last to long
so come with me
as I sing this song

(chorus)
Before you lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep
If I shall die before I wake
I pray the lord my soul to take
Before you lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep
If I shall die before I wake
I pray the lord my soul to take

Vers.2
If It wasn't for the bullet
If It wasn't for the gang
I'd still be here
tryin to praise his name
I put god last
When I should've puttin first
Now the devile can laugh
As I go deep into the durt
I chose to be a thug
insted of a saint
will I see another Christmas
O... I guess I aint
And I sorry mom
for not being there for you
but I want you to know
that I loved you
Even though my dad
wasn't always here
the times he was here
I think I shed tears
Cuz I glad to see him
glad to see his face
but another me
cant be replaced

(chorus)

Ending vers.
Lord I know I went the wrong direction
so were would you put me in yo section
will you take me wit you
or to all the evil
I might not go wit you cuz
your way is for good people
so tell me do I qualify
to fly wit you I praise your name every night

(chorus)
