Story behind the song
Dad was never the religious sort, mum hardly missed a church service. When I went into ministry they were both incredibly supportive. Even though they have both now passed on, I often feel their inspiration and seem to hear their words echoing around my life. What I'd sometimes give for just one more face to face conversation!
Lyrics
Preacher Song ©Adrian J Pratt 3/1/2019 Mother dear mother, I know you prayed for me Throughout those wild years... “Lord, what will that boy be?” Wish you were here now, I could thank you for your words, Not a single one was wasted Someone must have heard Father, dear father, Religion was never your thing, Yet you taught me right and wrong, I never wanted for a thing All those conversations We'd set the world to rights I still long for reassurance That I've turned out alright Now on a Sunday, I try and play my part I stand up there in a pulpit, And lay bare my heart Words don't come easy, Phrases can't always be found I just keeping praying the Spirit, Will spread the love around Don't be a preacher, That's sound advice To which I never listened, And so it became my life Sometimes I wonder Where on earth I'd be If it wasn't for the light You're shining down on me So keep shining your light on me I need those words of advice And sweet prayers to comfort me. Oo-Oo, Oo-Oo Now on a Sunday, I try and play my part I stand up there in a pulpit, And lay bare my heart Words don't come easy, Phrases can't always be found I just keeping praying the Spirit, Will spread the love around Father dear Father, Mother I still miss you But as the years are passing by, I just keep doing what I do Standing in a pulpit Wondering what to say The greatest gift you gave me Was love to give away Love to give away Love to give away
