1 Not my brother, nor my sister, but it’s me, O Lord,
standing in the need of prayer;
not my brother, nor my sister, but it’s me, O Lord,
standing in the need of prayer.
It’s me, it’s me, O Lord,
standing in the need of prayer;
it’s me, it’s me, O Lord,
Standing in the need of prayer.

2 Not the elder, nor the deacon, but it’s me, O Lord,
standing in the need of prayer;
not the elder, nor the deacon, but it’s me, O Lord,
standing in the need of prayer.
It’s me, it’s me, O Lord,
standing in the need of prayer;
it’s me, it’s me, O Lord,
Standing in the need of prayer.

3 Not my father, nor my mother, but it’s me, O Lord,
standing in the need of prayer;
not my father, nor my mother, but it’s me, O Lord,
standing in the need of prayer.
It’s me, it’s me, O Lord,
standing in the need of prayer;
it’s me, it’s me, O Lord,
Standing in the need of prayer.

4 Not the stranger, nor my neighbor, but it’s me, O Lord,
standing in the need of prayer;
not the stranger, nor my neighbor, but it’s me, O Lord,
standing in the need of prayer.
It’s me, it’s me, O Lord,
standing in the need of prayer;
it’s me, it’s me, O Lord,
Standing in the need of prayer.
