When You Pray

Here in Stirling Castle

You could not see the king

But if you spoke to a minister

He might get near to him

A long line of anterooms

Kept the folk at bay

Only privileged people

Got near to have their say


And I’m told that with dictators

The same routine goes on

Putin say or Stalin

The line goes on and on

Only a trusted few

Approach the seat of power

And even they aren’t trusted

Beyond a paltry hour


But at the throne of heaven

Access is open wide

To pray just say Our Father

You are welcome all inside

And what you say is powerful

You have the ear of grace

Your prayer is always listened to

With God you have your place
