Jim Brickman A Mother’s Prayer

As I lay you down to sleep I pray the lord

I pray the Lord your soul to keep

Cause I don’t need that much for me

This is a Mother’s Prayer

I pray for angels by your side

Ask they watch you day and night

Walk with you all through your life

This is a Mother’s Prayer

I pray that all the dreams you dream come true

And every star you wish upon

Grants every wish times two

I hope one day you get the chance

To truly see

What real love is

Like you’ve showed me

As I watch you fast asleep

I close my eyes and pray for peace

Cause now it means much more to me

This is a Mother’s Prayer

And as you grow as seasons pass

I hope that time won’t move too fast

Though it is too much to ask

This is a Mother’s Prayer

I pray that when you give your heart

It’s true

And all the love you give away

Comes back to you two times two

I hope one day you get the chance

To truly see

What real love is

And what you mean to me

In this great big world you can’t stay small forever

Cause before I know it you’ll be grown

And standing on your own

But I hope these words are something

That you’ll treasure

And you get the chance to whisper them

To children of your own

I pray that all the dreams you dream

Come true

And every star you wish upon

Grants every wish times two

I hope one day you get the chance

To truly see

What real love is

Like you’ve showed me

This is a Mother’s Prayer
