Message:  ANGELS LIGHT YOUR LAMPS

I sent a prayer to Venus, Texas
Angels, light your lamps
I sent a prayer to Venus, Texas
Angels, light your lamps
A good man's sick down there
Shine a light on Mister Stamps

I said Angels, guardian Angels
Bring your best medicine
I said Angels, blessed Angels
Bring your best medicine
Go on down to Venus
Take good care of him

Done so much for others
Lord, it's his turn now
Done so much for others
Lord, it's his turn now
I pray for you to lay your
Hands upon his brow

Sent a prayer to Venus, Texas
Angels, light your lamps
Sent a prayer to Venus, Texas
Angels, light your lamps
His name is Roy, this Texas boy
Shine a light on Mister Stamps

Do you hear me calling?
I'm one who has known sin
Do you hear me calling?
I'm one who has known sin
I go by the church on Sunday
But I do not go in

We need this man to make it
Need this man to live
Need this man to make it
Need this good man to live
Got a wife and a family
And so much more to give

Send my prayer to Venus, Texas
Angels, light your lamps
Send my prayer to Venus
Angels, light your lamps
A good man's sick down there
Shine a light on Mister Stamps

A song for Roy, little twelve-bar
blues hymn sung gently in a
Mississippi John Hurt style.
Would you sing it with me one time?
