Originally written as a lullaby during a period of loneliness, this was the last song my father ever heard me play. After his death, the song became a prayer for his passing on to the next.

Let Us Hope and Pray

When I lay my head down to sleep
I pray the Lord your soul to keep,
And if you die before I wake
I pray the Lord your soul to take.

All these feelings held inside
Looking for a place to hide,
A singer without a rhyme
A lost boy doing time.

So why must I be blue
Every time I think of you,
All these bitter tears I must weep
As I sing myself to sleep.

Now as I lay my head down to sleep
I pray to God your soul to keep,
But if you die before I wake
I pray to God your soul to take.
