Looking for name and lyrics - Somebody prayed
Posted: Fri Jun 08, 2018 3:20 pm
I am looking for a hymn my choir used to sing. Our church burned and we lost all our music. I loved this song and would like to find it again. The words went something like this: Somebody prayed, Somebody prayed, Somebody prayed. Was that somebody you? That might have been the chorus line.

Is this possibly what you are looking for?
Somewhere a brother was bowed down with care
Burdens were pressing, so heavy to bear
Then midst the trial a sweet calm broke through
Somebody prayed, was that somebody you?
A burden grew lighter
And courage was staid
A sigh turned to song
A faint heart grew strong
And gray skies seemed brighter
For somebody prayed.
If that’s the song you are looking for,
here is a link with a list of the hymnals it can be found in:
