Lord, oh, hear me praying,
Lord, oh, hear me praying,
Lord, oh, hear me praying;

1 Like Peter when you said to him,
Feed my sheep,
Like Peter when you said to him,
feed my sheep,
Like Peter when you said to him,
Feed my lambs,
Like Peter when you said to him,
feed my lambs. [Refrain]

2 Like Peter when you said to him,
I build my church-
Like Peter when you said to him,
upon this rock,
Like Peter when you said to him,
The gates of hell -
Like Peter when you said to him,
will never shock. [Refrain]

3 Like the Baptist when you said,
I am a voice -
Like the Baptist when you said,
crying ev'ry day,
Like the Baptist when you said,
In the wilderness,
Like the Baptist when you said,
"Prepare the way." [Refrain]
