Lyrics

Am
Whatever you are going through
F                                                Am
someone somewhere prays for you.   
Am
Whatever you are going through
F                                                Am
someone somewhere prays for you.   
                   F           Am
Someone prays for you.

 

Am                                               G
Praying in the morning and they want you to hear it.
Praying in the evening and they want you to hear it.
Praying in the morning and they want you to hear it.
Praying in the evening and they want you to hear it.

 

Am                             F.     G
Hold on, stretch out your hands.
Am                             G.        Am
I guarantee someone understands.
Hold on, stretch out your hand.
I guarantee someone understands.

About This Song

This song intends to reach in during feelings of isolation with the reassurance that precisely you are being cared about somewhere at this moment by many people you can't see.

Workshop ideas: The beliefs about a spiritual dimension are widely individual. Broaden the meaning to include rather than impose. These are substitute words to consider:

Someone somewhere stands with you.
Someone somewhere stands for you.
Someone somewhere thinks of you.
Someone somewhere cares for you.
Someone somewhere speaks up for you.

Discussion: Hold a bowl or some other object like a special wooden spoon that conveys care, and pass it around. Invite participants to send a thought or wish to a person in the world who they are drawn to think about right now. Give the option to hold and pass the object silently.

Expanded singing: Take this simple rendition and add harmony, repetition, and your own musical ideas.
