Wonít Somebody Call My Name Tonight

 

Well, it was in a little church house

on a country road one night;

I ventured by and peeped inside,

thought I heard somebody pray.

My heart was heavy laden

and tears flowed from my eyes.

I said, I wish someone whoíd prayed

would call my name tonight.

Wonít somebody call my name in prayer tonight?

 I canít pray, Iím too weak,

and the Lord knows Iím not right.

Oh, Iíd like to go to Heaven,

but Iím ashamed of my life.

Wonít somebody call my name tonight?

Once my life was torn and shattered.

I could not find my way.

My only hope was just to die.

For myself I could not pray.

I was lost in the world dying,

never knew who saved my life,

but in my desperate moment

somebody called my name that night.

Wonít somebody call my name in prayer tonight?

I canít pray, Iím too weak,

and the Lord knows Iím not right.

Oh, Iíd like to go to Heaven,

but Iím ashamed of my life.

Wonít somebody call my name tonight?

 Iím so glad somebody called my name that night.
