10. Still Listening

Heaven In The Real World
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

God our father, god our father
Once again, once again
We bow our heads and thank you
Bow our head and thank you
Amen, Amen

I would lay me down to sleep and pray the Lord my soul to keep
And though I never say Him there, I believe He heard each prayer
For God was great and God was good, and I knew if I spoke the words
He would be listening

The years can take us far away from the simple childlike faith
But I am longing to return to the place where I first learned
That God is great and God is good so I will speak the words

God our Father once again I bow my head to pray
You are my Father and my friend, and you hear every word I say
A prayer for forgiveness, a desperate cry for help
Or praise flowing from a thankful heart
Like each time before I come knowing You're still listening

I will never understand how the words of mortal man
Can reach the ears of One so pure and touch His heart, but they do I'm sure
For God is great and God is good, and He is love

God our Father once again I bow my head to pray
You are my Father and my friend, and you hear every word I say
A prayer for forgiveness, a desperate cry for help
Or praise flowing from a thankful heart
Like each time before I come knowing You're still listening
Now I lay me down to sleep
And pray the Lord my soul to keep
And though I may not see you there
I believe you'll hear each prayer
