Song lyrics
Though my heart is heavy with grief
My faith is strong, bring me relief
Sometimes my dreams are closer
Sometimes my feelings are so far away
You've got a minute to rest and a second to pray

Now I've got to fall down on my knees
You can face the west, you can face the east
My tired eyes can see the coming of a better day
You've got a minute to rest and a second to pray
A minute to rest and a second to pray

It's the last thing you hear
The first thing you fear
The sign of the wasted years
And the pain with those tears

Battles across the ocean, battles outside my door
When night falls upon me, falls upon my mind
Before I'd lay, before I'd lay, before I'd lay
I take a minute to rest and a second to pray

You get a minute to rest, just a second to pray
You get a minute to rest and a second to pray
You get a minute to rest and a second to pray
You get a minute to rest and a second to pray

Pray with the women you love
Pray that the heaven's above
You got a second, you got a minute to rest
Get it in your mind, take up the time

You got a second to pray
Don't think about yesterday
Take a minute to rest, take a second to pray
You only got a minute to rest, to rest, to rest, to rest
