168. I Am Praying for You

1 I have a Savior, He’s pleading in glory,
A dear, loving savior, though earth-friends be few;
And now He is watching in tenderness o’er me,
And, oh, that my Savior were your savior, too.

Refrain:
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
I’m praying for you.

2 I have a Father, to me He has given
A hope for eternity, blessed and true;
And soon will He call me to meet Him in heaven,
But, oh, that He’d let me bring you with me, too! [Refrain]

3 I have a robe: ’tis resplendent in whiteness,
Awaiting in glory my wondering view;
Oh, when I receive it all shining in brightness,
Dear friend, could I see you receiving one, too! [Refrain]

4 When Jesus has found you, tell others the story,
That my loving savior is your savior, too;
Then pray that your Savior may bring them to glory,
And prayer will be answered, ’twas answered for you! [Refrain]
