Lord, teach us to pray
It's been a long and cold December kind of day
With our hearts and hands all busy
In our private little wars
We stand and watch each other now
From separate shores
You lead the way
Trach us to pray

What are the rest of the words from the above song. Something like, we still get so distracted by the color of ones skin, .....I too have been hunting for the song, I grew up in the 70's and I still sing it today.

Lord, Teach Us to Pray

Lyrics & Music


by

Joseph Wise


Refrain:

Lord, teach us to pray,

It's been a long and cold December kind of day,

with our hearts and hands all busy in our private little wars.

We stand and watch each other now from separate shores;

we lose the way.





I need to know today the way things should be in my head;

I need to know for once now the things that should be said.

I've got to learn to walk around as if I were not dead;

I've got to find a way to learn to live.


(Refrain)





I still get so distracted by the color of my skin;

I still get so upset now when I find that I don't win.

I meet so many strangers; I'm so slow to take them in

I've got to find a way to really live.


(Refrain)





I stand so safe and sterile as I watch someone fall flat;

I'm silent with a person who'd like to know just where I'm at.

With the aged and the lonely I can barely tip my hat;

I need to see the sin in "I don't care."


(Refrain)





I stand so smug and sure before the people I've out-guessed;

to let them all be who they are I still see as a test.

And when it all comes down to "must," I'm sure my way is best.

I've got to find what "room" means in my heart.


(Refrain)





I walk and fall, myself alone, can't tolerate a guide.

And when the camps split up I'm sure to put you on my side

and dare someone to challenge me and swear I will not hide.

I've got to find a better way to live.


(Refrain)





I mouth so many things, take so little time to weigh;

I've let it all slip by in the sweep of yesterday.

I can't believe you mean it all to grace me on my way;

I've got to find a way to really live.





Lord, teach us to pray.

We still believe that we can find a better way.

Teach us to pray.

We lose the way.

Teach us to pray.

And yet another parishioner finds the lyrics to a song that has been with them since the 1980's! The choir of Our Lady Star of the Sea Chapel, on the Coast Guard base Governors Island, sang this lovely song one Easter, under the wonderful leadership of Nancy Parish, choir leader and friend to this day! God bless all of you folks who took the time to write down the words to this hymn. I thank you from the bottom of my heart! Patrice

A soloist sang this song on Easter morning at my hometown parish in the 70s in Dothan, AL. Remembering only part of the refrain, I've searched for the lyrics for years. Thank you for sharing!

Look at Him, There on the cross
Nailed by our lack of concern...
His hands are ourtstrectched for the nails
Look at him there, He is dying...
Forgive Lord, forgive...
It was night when we did what we did...
But then comes the morniing.
Yesterday's sorrows behind...
Wake its the day of your longing.
Life returns, Mercy Comes and Its morning...
