Somewhere today is a heart

Representative Text

1 Somewhere today is a heart that is true,
Lovingly, longingly thinking of you;
Some one you know who can never forget,
Whose heart of affection remembers you yet.

Some one is praying!
Some one is praying!
Somewhere today,
Some one’s praying for you!
Somewhere today,
Somewhere today,
Is some one who is praying,
Who is praying for you.

2 Backward now look, and in memory’s light,
What is the picture before you tonight?
Whose loving eyes turn to look in your own,
And whose is the love light that for you once shone. [Refrain]

3 Hark to the voice that entreatingly calls;
Still thro’ the silence it tenderly falls;
Pleading with you to remember to do
The word early spoken, the counsel so true. [Refrain]

4 Some one now speaks thro’ the lips that you love;
Some one is bending to watch from above;
Voices so sweet for you pray and entreat;
Come now to the Savior, bow low at his feet. [Refrain]
