He calls me to pray
He tells the Lord, to watch over me
Oh my Papa, he can like to say
As you go away, don’t forget where you came
If you lose your way, you can pray
Don’t be afraid, don’t lose faith
You will find your help, there’ll be a way
Just remember to pray and you’ll be okay
He calls everyday
He asks me, Son, I hope you’re doing okay
Oh my Papa
He too dey fear say I go go astray
‘Cause I walk a stranger land and my help is so far away
