You know us

1. All our thoughts are prayers,
But we forget you share each one:
Good, bad, and uncaring, Lord,
Including those we shun.

2. All our words are prayers,
But we forget you hear them, too:
Angry, mean, dishonest, Lord,
Forbearing, kind, or true.

3. All our deeds are prayers,
But we forget you see what’s done:
Cheating, stealing, hurting, Lord,
We’re nothing like your Son.

4. All our lives are prayers, Lord,
And you know us through and through,
So it’s pointless to imagine
We can hide our sins from you.
