I said a prayer for you today
That God would take your fear away,
And that you would no longer dread
When lights are out and you're in bed.
I prayed God's light to shine right there
To soothe your soul with loving care,
And take away the painful part
Of memories from that little girl
Who was harmed by the evil in this world.
For sister-love is very strong,
And fights real hard to right a wrong.
God's our Father now, you know,
And to His arms we all may go.
He'll take the hurt and ease the pain
So you can live your life again.
You wonder how I know it's true?
Because I lived that life with you.
And nightly angels came to stay
To watch and take my fear away.
God made us sisters for a reason,
And we have weathered many seasons.
Through many more I'll walk with you.
I'll listen and will talk with you.
And if you need me, I'll be there,
And rest assured I'll always care
About your future, present, and past
For our sister-love was meant to last.
I said a prayer for you today,
And God will take your fear away.
And you'll no longer have to dread,
Because Light shines eternal around your bed.
