Lord help to send a man
In this land
Oh Lord help send a man
In this land

When we all die together
And we face the rising sun
Oh my Lord, oh my lord

Lord Help the Poor and needy
In this land
Oh Lord Help the Poor and needy
In this land

When we all die together
And we face the rising sun
Oh Lord, help, my Lord

Lord help the human race
Lord help human race
Cause we all die together
And we face the morning sun
Oh Lord, help

Lord help the motherless children
In this land
Oh Lord help the motherless children
In this land

Cause we all die together
And we face the rising sun
Oh Lord, help, Lord

    My OpinionThis is my favourite Cat Power song by far. Such a beautiful interpretation of the original (which I believe is by Jessie Mae Hemphill). There's something very haunting about this version. Gives me the shivers.
