Couldn't Hear Nobody Pray

An’ I couldn’t hear nobody pray.
O Lord!
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
O-way down yonder
By myself,
I couldn’t hear nobody pray,

In the valley,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
On my knees,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
With my burden,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
An’ my Savior,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray.

O Lord!

I couldn’t hear nobody pray,
O Lord!
Couldn’t hear nobody pray.
O-way down yonder
By myself,
I couldn’t hear nobody pray.

Chilly waters,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
In the Jordan,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
Crossing over,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray.
Into Canaan,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray.

O Lord!

I couldn’t hear nobody pray,
O Lord!
Couldn’t hear nobody pray.
O-way down yonder
By myself,
I couldn’t hear nobody pray.

Hallejuh!
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
Troubles over,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
In the Kingdom,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray,
With my Jesus,
Couldn’t hear nobody pray.

O Lord!

I couldn’t hear nobody pray,
O Lord!
Couldn’t hear nobody pray.
O-way down yonder
By myself,
I couldn’t hear nobody pray.
