THE SHUT-INS PRAYER (Jimmy Martin / Paul Williams) Jimmy Martin & TheSunny Mountain Boys - 1960 Also recorded by: Melvin Goins Last night as the moon pulled anchor And sailed down the milky way It peeked through an old front window Where a lonely shut-in lay The moon seemed to shine much brighter Each star seemed to nod it's head The night seemed so strangely peaceful When they heard what the shut-in said Dear God way up in heaven I earnestly pray to thee And my prayer, oh Lord, was thou answered And lay a healing hand on me This vain world seems to forget me, Lord And I've been a shut-in so long I'm needing thy love, dear Jesus And still in my heart a song Lord, I ask not for gold or silver And no diamonds to call my own Just give me that touch of healing I'm so weak and all alone I trust that I'm not asking too much Of thy heavenly wealth When humbly, dear Lord, I pray thee Just give me back my health Then off to dreamland the shut-in drifted Yes, God heard what the shut-in said The night seemed so strangely peaceful When they heard what the shut-in said
