  • Many things you pulled me through and I wouldn't even know
    There's an army that walks with me when I step out on that road
    You ask them every day to accompany me on my way
    Woah, you never forget to ask, you got books full of prayers
    That stacks, that stacks, that stacks

    And if I fall, what if I fall?
    These hands will catch it all
    Mmmm, mmmm
    And if I fall, what if I fall?
    These hands will catch it all
    Mmmm

    Yo, them brothers came 'round to the block and tried to spray us
    Demons of the night, they came alive and tried to slay us
    Whilst I was in my boxers playing COD and San Andreas
    I think I owe it all to mommy's prayers
    I will remember in December when they never tried to play us
    And tryna hit the charts without the radio is chaos
    And mommy sat me down and told me they could never stray us
    I charted, that was 'cause of mommy's prayers, yeah

    I know I'll be just fine
    This little light of mine
    I know those hands will catch it all
    Yes, I know that
    I know I'll be just fine
    This little light of mine, yeah

    I witnessed harshness, I've felt darkness in the night
    Shadows may chase me down, but your words keep them behind
    You got me covered and I had no idea
    You put your hands together and you dry up all of my tears

    And if I fall, what if I fall?
    These hands will catch it all
    Mmmm, mmmm
    And if I fall, what if I fall?
    These hands will catch it all
    Mmmm (yo)

    bailiffs at my door because the council tried to play us
    Then my mommy made a call and in the end, they had to pay us
    I don't know how it worked but all I knew was we was way up
    I guess it was 'cause of mommy's prayers
    I've been stabbed bare times but they couldn't see the chaos
    Had a brother in the news, yeah, I see how they portray us
    But when I have kids, and they ever disobey us
    I'ma warn 'em about the power of their grandmother's prayers, yo

    I know I'll be just fine
    This little light of mine
    I know those hands will catch it all
    Yes, I know that
    I know I'll be just fine
    This little light of mine
    I know those hands will catch it all
    Yes, I know that

    Momma's prayers they guide me
    Momma's prayers they guide me
    Momma's prayers they guide me
    Momma's prayers they guide me
    Momma's prayers they guide me
    Momma's prayers they guide me
    Momma's prayers they guide me
    Momma's prayers

    I know I'll be just fine
    This little light of mine
    I know those hands will catch it all
    Yes, I know that
    I know I'll be just fine
    This little light of mine
    I know those hands will catch it all
    Yes, I know that
    I know I'll be just fine
    This little light of mine
    I know those hands will catch it all
    Yes, I know that

    I know I'll be just fine
    This little light of mine

    I know those hands will catch it all Writer/s: HANNAH VASANTH, JOHN PAUL COOPER, MICHAEL EBENAZER KWADJO OMARI OWUO JUNIOR
