Martha was praying like the way she always did.
In the early hours of the day.
It was the same prayer she was praying day after day
'Just a word', she said
'Just a word from you Lord is all I want to begin my new year with.
Just a word from you, the dead arose,
The sick were healed,
The storms were calmed.
Just a word from you is all I want.
A word from the Pharaoh bought Joseph out of prison
Just that word changed his situation.
From a prisoner to the Prime Minister of the greatest of all nations.
Just a word made all the dreams you had placed in his heart come to pass
Just a word Lord just a word
Can cause tears to stop
Can cause pain to end.
Just a word Lord just a word is all we need
To give us the strength to go on'.
