Not my brother, not my sister, but it’s me oh Lord/ Standing in the need of prayer/ It’s me, it’s me, it’s me, oh Lord

Not my brother, not my sister, but it’s me oh Lord

Standing in the need of prayer
It’s me, it’s me, it’s me, oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer
It’s me, it’s me, it’s me, oh Lord

Not the preacher, not the sinner, but it’s me oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer
Not the preacher, not the sinner, but it’s me oh Lord
