Sanctus Real 33

Oh, I was just a young one

When I heard my mother pray

I’d never fall away

And where we came from

We didn’t have much

But she knew the secret to having everything

And she prayed, take this child of mine

Keep him in Your hands

And now I’m 33

Looking at this path behind me

And all You’ve brought me through

And I’ve made my mistakes

I’ve caused my share of heartache

But I have seen a mother’s prayer come true

Oh, Lord my heart still belongs to You

Now I look on those young lives

Stare in those precious eyes

And I understand why my mother prayed for us

She never gave up

And I know her prayers for me

They taught me to believe

So I pray, take this child of mine

And let me live to hear them say

I’m 33

Looking at this path behind me

And all You’ve brought me through

And I’ve made my mistakes

I’ve caused my share of heartache

But I have seen a father’s prayer come true

Oh, Lord my heart still belongs to You

Oh, I’m 33 and God I see how much I need you now

And there’s a prayer that carries me through every day of doubt

Lord, I want to be the kind of man who passes down

A legacy of faith and love that’s never burning out

Oh, I’m 33 and I still feel those prayers around me

And all they’ve brought me through
