Sister Deloris by Chris Daniels 2010

Sister Delores would you pray for me, for I am scared
Sister Delores pray for me,
she said Jehovah would be there

You might call me a foxhole Christian,
you would not be wrong
The power of her benediction,
you might have even come along

Sister Delores came to me, in my darkest hour
Sister Delores she fond me, in that frightful tower

She said hold my hand
and we'll pray together
And I let it be
Facing what we all must face
It felt like a light to me

Sister Delores pray for me, for I am scared
Sister Delores said she'd pray for me,
she said I'm standing in the gap, I'm there

You can accuse me of being battlefield Christian,
And you would not be wrong
But if you felt the power of her benediction like a Staples's singer's Gospel song
