On a Sunday late in April
On a bird with silver wings
Sits a man who’s always faithful
From winter through to spring

He’s lost a couple good ones
Maybe more than his share
No less heavy when it’s slow or sudden
Sometimes it don’t seem fair

One less voice one less heart
One less pair of hands
One less napkin plate and chair
It might be one less Christmas card
But I believe the preacher man
It’s also one more prayer

Death can heal those still alive
I can feel it in my chest
It’s not about who’s wrong or who’s right
No it’s about who’s left

One less voice one less heart
One less pair of hands
One less napkin plate and chair
It might be one less Christmas card
But I believe the preacher man
It’s also one more prayer

So where’s the silver lining
What are the magic words
I’m down here on my knees
Just tryin’ to trust His timing
And lean into what I’ve heard
Prayer don’t change God it changes me
