I kneel before Thee
With a single prayer
I know in Thine eyes
I am not loyal
Nor am I believing
But I pray to Thee
Just one single prayer
I am not ashamed
Nor am I contrite
I have denied Your contracts
And I have not yet succumbed
To Your demanding customs
But I need Your wisdom
I need Your ways
I pray to Thee
Please set him free
Free his mind and free his heart
Give him the strength
Let him know what he wants
Let him decide for himself
O Lord, I know I am myopic
I know I pray for me alone
But, please O Lord
If you have any mercy
Hear my prayer
For his lips
