Kneeling Drunkard's Plea

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

June:
Lord, have mercy on me
Was the kneeling drunkard’s plea
And as he knelt there on the ground
I know that God in heaven looked down

June:
I went down by an old country church
I saw the drunkard stagger and lurch
And as he reached his father’s grave
I saw the drunkard kneel and pray

Chorus:
Lord, have mercy on me
Was the kneeling drunkard’s plea
And as he knelt there on the ground
I know that God in heaven looked down

June:
Bring my darling boy home to me
Was his mother’s dying plea
And as he staggered through the gates
Alas, he came just one day too late

Chorus: 3 years have passed since she went away
And her son is sleeping beside her today
June: And I know that in heaven his mother he’ll see
For God has heard the drunkard’s plea

Chorus:
Lord, have mercy on me
Was the kneeling drunkard’s plea
June: And as he knelt there on the ground
I know that God in heaven looked down
