Chorus:
O, steal away and pray,
I'm looking for my Jesus;
Steal away and pray,
I'm looking for my Jesus,
Steal away and pray,
I'm looking for my Jesus,
Can't stay away.

1 Sinners, why don't you pray?
Sinners, why don't you pray?
Sinners, why don't you pray?
I can't stay away. [Chorus]

2 Seekers, why don't you pray?
Seekers, why don't you pray?
Seekers, why don't you pray?
I can't stay away. [Chorus]

3 Mourners, why don't you pray?
Mourners, why don't you pray?
Mourners, why don't you pray?
I can't stay away. [Chorus]

4 Brothers, why don't you pray?
Brothers, why don't you pray?
Brothers, why don't you pray?
I can't stay away.
I prayed so hard,
When looking for my Jesus;
Prayed so hard,
When looking for my Jesus,
Prayed so hard,
When looking for my Jesus,
Can't stay away.
