In Tune:

To Kneel in Family Prayer

    Simply; with feeling

    1. Our fam’ly gathers daily to kneel in fam’ly prayer

    When love’s flame brightly shines as we join with those who care.

    A time of refuge, time of peace, a time of unity—

    Our voices reaching t’ward eternity.

    2. In times of struggle and when the world’s a lonely place

    We kneel and troubles fade as we see each loving face

    And in the stillness of the circle, heaven’s voice is heard.

    How sweet to hear a Father’s gentle word.

    And sometimes when I feel confused, my way does not seem clear,

    Until I come with those I love to kneel in fam’ly prayer;

    I find my answer there. It fades away my care.

    Our fam’ly gathers daily to kneel in fam’ly prayer

    When love’s flame brightly shines as we join with those who care.

    A time of refuge, time of peace, a time of unity—

    Our voices reaching t’ward eternity.

    Our voices reaching t’ward eternity.
