The Prayer, Dion and Bocelli (Lexi Walker and Jenny Oaks Baker)


Introducing to our Self-Educated American audience, Lexi Mae Walker, just barely 15 years old when this most inspiring rendition of Dion and Bocelli’s “The Prayer” was released on You Tube. I heard Lexi live for the first time this past Christmas (still only 16) at the Daine Concert Hall, accompanied by the American Festival Chorus and Orchestra, on the campus of Utah State University – It was among the most amazing and memorable performances this editor has witnessed in his time. My hats off to Lexi Walker – Steve Farrell, Editor-In-Chief, Self-Educated American

Lyrics for The Prayer

I pray you’ll be our eyes
And watch us where we go
And help us to be wise
In times when we don’t know
Let this be our prayer
When we lose our way
Lead us to a place
Guide us with your grace
To a place where we’ll be safe.
I pray we’ll find your light
I pray we’ll find your light
And hold it in our hearts
And hold it in our hearts
When stars go out each night
Stars go out each night
Remind us where you are.
Remind us where you are.
Let this be our prayer
Let this be our prayer
When shadows fill our day
When shadows fill our day
Lead us to a place
Guide us with your grace
Guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe.
A world where pain and sorrow will be ended
And every heart that’s broken will be mended
And we’ll remember we are all God’s children
Reaching out to touch you
Reaching to the sky.
We ask that life be kind
We ask that life be kind
And watch us from above
And watch us from above
We hope each soul will find
We hope each soul will find
Another soul to love
Another soul to love.
Let this be our prayer
Let this be our prayer
Just like every child.
Just like every child.
Needs to find a place
Guide us with your grace.
Give us faith so we’ll be safe
