He Prays for Her

written for the daughter of a friend for her high school graduation

Her father’s friend long he’d been
They joined the Navy way back when
Different paths in time they’d take
Different choices they would make

And he prays for him
And he prays for him

As time went on their paths would cross
Children were born and parents lost
Her father told of his daughter sweet
Child that someday friend would meet

And he prays for her
And he prays for him

Church she attends by herself
Has Christian music on her shelf
Somewhere in his church she sits
Father’s friend, he knows of this

And he prays for her
And he prays for him

Her name is seen there on the list
A missions trip was her great wish
A touch from God, received while there
Her face he saw, as he heard her share

And he prays for her
And he prays for him

She’s grown up now a lady fine
Known as one who’s strong and kind
Her father proud of his daughter fair
His friend in part his joy can share

‘Cause he prayed for her
And he prays for him
