Classic Country K. A. Patterson: Albums

What I Pray

(K. A. Patterson and the Paradise Band featuring David)


What is this thing that keeps my spirit warm whenever life has turned so cold?

The gentle force that keeps me ever young, when life’s rough road would leave me old?

And gives tomorrow hope when despair sets in today?  And turns my every frown back to a smile?

It brightens every dark and dreary place along my way – The only thing that never fails to make me

feel alive.


It’s your love – that soul that overflows with sweet and tender care for all of God’s creation,

everywhere and every way – for beauty and for nature, spreading sunshine everywhere – and for me,

in your warm and selfless heart, is what I pray.


It’s in the voice of pure sincerity, as you comfort one who’s lost a friend.

And in the way you speak from your heart to God, “please heal their hurt and let their broken

heart mend”.

I can see it in your eyes for those you’re meeting day by day – reflection of God’s own loving light. 

It brightens every dark and dreary place along their way – the only thing that never fails to make me

feel alive.


It’s your love – that soul that overflows with sweet and tender care for all of God’s creation,

everywhere and every way – for beauty and for nature, spreading sunshine everywhere – and for me,

in your sweet and selfless heart, is what I pray.  Yes, love for me, in your kind & selfless heart, is what

I pray.
