I went to bed in my nightdress
dressed just right for prayers of righteousness
I had my hands clasped tight for this
and I did pray, I did pray

First the required content
the poor, the sick, and the haunted
finish with the things that I wanted
so as not to be bold, not to be bold

I went to camp for the horses
or the food, the fires or rejoices
not the girls or the guys but the voices
held out my palms, held up my palms

I went to bat for the good son
ran the bases just for the right one
grace comes only when life is done
so put down your head, put down your head

My knees, my hands, my chest
for guilt, for love, I beg please bless
I say my prayers, I genuflect
and if I do it right will you let me in

My deeds, my hands, this mess
in guilt we silence our questions
I say my prayers nevertheless
did I do it right, don't you leave me yet
