398. I Am Praying for You

1 I have a Saviour, He’s pleading in glory,
A dear, loving Saviour, though earth-friends be few;
And now He is watching in tenderness o’er me,
But, oh, that my Savior were your Saviour, too!

For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
I’m praying for you.

2 I have a Father; to me He has given
A hope for eternity, blessed and true;
And soon He will call me to meet Him in heaven,
But, oh, that He’d let me bring you with me, too! (Refrain)

3 I have a robe; 'tis resplendent in whiteness,
Awaiting in glory my wondering view;
Oh, when I receive it all shining in brightness,
Dear friend, could I see you receiving one too! (Refrain)

4 When He has found you, tell others the story,
That my loving Saviour is your Savior, too;
Then pray that your Saviour may bring them to glory,
And prayer will be answered--’twas answered for you! (Refrain)
