Intro: Bb

Bb  
Oh, the desert dreams of a river
          F               Eb
that will run down to the sea
Bb           
like my heart longs for an ocean
    F             Bb   
to wash down over me. 


Eb                       Bb
Oh, won't you take me from this valley
Eb                     F  
to that mountain high above? 
Bb                  F
I will pray, pray, pray 
Gm                       Eb
until I see your smiling face. 
Bb                  F
I will pray, pray, pray 
             Bb 
to the one I love. 


-same chord progression throughout the song-


Oh, the outcast dreams of acceptance,
just to find pure love's embrace
like an orphan longs for his mother. 
May you hold me in your grace. 

Won't you take me from this valley
to that mountain high above? 
I will pray, pray, pray 
until I see your smiling face. 
I will pray, pray, pray 
to the one I love. 

Oh, the caged bird dreams of a strong wind 
that will flow 'neath her wings. 
Like a voice longs for a melody, 
oh, Jesus carry me. 

Won't you take me from this valley
to that mountain high above? 
I will pray, pray, pray 
until I see your smiling face. 
I will pray, pray, pray 
to the one I love.

I will pray, pray, pray 
until I see your smiling face. 
I will pray, pray, pray 
to the one I love.
